Android 2.3 Continues Soaring Upward, now Installed on 55 percent of Google Devices

Google's monthly Android distribution charts may be the most visual piece of evidence that the mobile OS is riddled with fragmentation, but at least Gingerbread has clearly become the dominant player -- and it continues to build momentum at a healthy pace (for now, at least). 

As always, Google reviewed which devices accessed the Android Market during a 14-day period of time in the month of December, and found that over 55 percent of those units were running a version of Android 2.3, a ten percent turbo boost from October and an increase of seventeen percent over three months.

Froyo devices -- many of which are likely older phones or tablets sentenced to a upgrade-less future -- numbered over 30 percent, and Honeycomb still amounts to a meager 3.3 percent. Cupcake and ICS are tied for last place, but it's expected  to climb rapidly as soon as it's, y'know, officially available on more devices.

Wow, neat to see you're still posting all the time. It's been a year and a half since our original blogger circle started and it's pretty much collapsed completely lol.
