Back at the beginning of November, we heard from Google that the number of Android users on Gingerbread (2.3) had surpassed Froyo (2.2), with 44.4% and 40.7% respectively.
Now the figures are out for the two-week period ending December 1, and Gingerbread has reached another landmark, with over half of Android users now apparently just one step away from Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0).
The figures are based on visits to the Android Market over the fortnight, and suggest that Gingerbread has surpassed the 50% mark for the first time. Here’s the distribution tale in full:
- Gingerbread – 50.6%
- Froyo – 35.3%
- Eclair (2.1) – 9.6%
- Honeycomb (3.0-3.2) – 2.4%
- Donut (1.6) – 1.3%
- Cupcake (1.5) – 0.8%
Those figures add up to 100. I’m happy.
Interestingly, there’s absolutely no mention of Ice Cream Sandwich. Shouldn’t the Samsung Galaxy Nexus be in there, dudes? It’ll be interesting to see how quickly Android 4.0 rises.
It’s taken Gingerbread pretty much a year to get to the 50% mark, but with Ice Cream Sandwich being available on smartphones and tablets, we expect to see it take command a tad quicker.
