The most dominant version of Android remains version 2.3 Gingerbread, still found on more than 54.2 percent of all Android devices. That's down slightly from 55.8 percent last month and 57.5 percent the prior month. Gingerbread is still king after its debut almost two years ago, though the latest number show that its powerful grip on Android is gradually losing steam.
Android 2.2 Froyo remains a major force with a 12 percent share. The three versions prior to Froyo collectively account for 3.5 percent of the market. And Android 2.2/2.3, or Honeycomb, holds just 1.8 percent of all Android devices.The latest data is based on the number of Android devices that accessed the Google Play store in the 14 days ending November 1.
