Android 2.1+ Base Jumps to 70 Percent

Developers have long complained about the number of different versions of Android in use, particularly about the number of users still on older versions. Now, the latest figures from Google show that the majority of users (70 percent) are using one of the latest two versions: 2.1 (Éclair) and 2.2 (Froyo).


During the past few weeks, a number of handsets upgraded to Android 2.2. As a result, use of version 2.2 skyrocketed from 2.2 percent in July to 28.7 percent in September. The number of users on version 1.6 or 1.5 has dropped to 17.5 percent and 12.0 percent, respectively.
