Android in Dec 2010: 51.8% of all droids now run Froyo

11 January, 2011

One of every two Android smartphones out there now runs the version 2.2 of the operating system. And while Froyo already accounts for 51.8% of all droids, 2.3 Gingerbread has the miniscule market share of 0.4%.

Of course, we should have in mind that the statistics are based on data collected in the two weeks ending on 4 January. At that time there was only one handset running Gingerbread available (the Nexus S) and it has only been selling for a few weeks in just a couple of countries. We are expecting this percentage to increase rapidly as the reach of Android 2.3 extends over the coming weeks.

The 8.4% percent of market share that Froyo gained over the past month are mostly at the expense of Android 2.1 Eclair, which slipped 4.4% compared to last month and now runs on 35.2% of all droids.

Android 1.5 Cupcake and 1.6 Donut took another step towards oblivion as their respective market shares dropped to 4.7% (from 6.3% in November) and 7.9% (10.6% in November). At that rate those two will be practically extinct by the end of March.

I dont think so... Since that X10 wont have its Froyo, the chances for X8 to have its Froyo is so tiny.
