Google’s latest Android platform stats show that just over a third of Android users are currently on the most advanced version of the software, Android 2.2 (aka Froyo). Android 2.1 (Eclair) remains the most popular version for now, with 40% of users accessing Android Market from this platform.
Collected during the last two weeks in October, the stats are based on visits to the Android Marketplace. It’s reassuring to see the older versions falling right behind – Android 1.6 (Donut) has just 15% of the user-base and Android 1.5 (Cupcake) 8%.
There’s also 0.1% of Android users running obsolete versions of the OS and yet still accessing the Marketplace. If these people (or this person, perhaps) isn’t some kind of developer, then we’d love to know who they are and why, like a kind of digital vagrant, they haven’t upgraded yet?
