According to the latest research carried out in the last 14 days, the most dominant version of Android OS is Android 2.2. Android 2.2 holds 65.9% of the market share, and in second place there’s Android 2.1 with 24.5%. We also have to notice that Android 2.3 / 2.3.3 is getting more users, and at the moment it holds 4% of the market. As you can see, Android 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3 hold most of the market share, but what about Android 3.0? Currently, Honeycomb holds only 0.3% so its no wonder why app developers aren’t focusing on this version of Android, there simply isn’t enough money involved.
Despite the release of Android 3.0, Android 2.2 remains the dominant version of Android OS, rolling out firmware updates consistently across brands have always been Android’s Achilles heel from day one and according to these results, Android 2.2 will likely stay in its throne for some time to come.
