Last December, if my aging memory serves me correctly, the Samsung-developed Google Nexus S debuted Gingerbread (Android 2.3).
Fast forward 11 months, and the latest figures from Android show that more users are finally rocking Gingerbread than Froyo (Android 2.2).
That’s all well and good, but obviously we’ve got Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) on the horizon waiting to stink those figures up nice and good. This is the trend, see; just as Googs gets on top of things, the process starts all over.
Anyway, here’s how those figures look for now:
- Cupcake (Android 1.5) – 0.9%
- Donut (Android 1.6) – 1.4%
- Eclair (Android 2.1) – 10.7%
- Froyo – 40.7%
- Gingerbread – 44.4%
- Honeycomb – 1.9%
Being incredibly anal, I have checked and can confirm that those figures add up to 100%. Nice.
Ice Cream Sandwich aims to unite Android tablets and smartphones. Or some of them, at least. It’ll make its debut on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. A host of spanking new handsets such as the Motorola RAZR will reportedly ship with Gingerbread initially, with Ice Cream Sandwich landing soon after.
Meanwhile, LG owners were recently told that the Optimus 2X, Optimus 3D and Optimus Black would get, er, Gingerbread. I’m sure they’re delighted.
