Fewer than 0.5% of Google Android users run Gingerbread, while 51.8% are on Froyo

Only .four% of Android users are operating the newest version of Google's mobile operating program, identified as Gingerbread.

That's a quite low quantity considering the millions of Android smart phones and tablets that have been sold. But the quantity, released on Google's Android Developers internet site, makes a bit of sense considering Gingerbread -- also known as Android 2.3 -- is obtainable only on the Nexus S wise telephone from Samsung, and sold only in Ideal Purchase shops.

Froyo, the construct of Android released before Gingerbread, accounts for 51.8% of Android phones in operation, Google said.

And Eclair, the version just before Froyo, is run on 35.two% of Android devices, the Website reported. Android users operating version 1.5 and 1.6 of the OS make up 12.six% of the phones in operation, Google mentioned.

The update prices for Android customers is held back, in part, by the truth that Wireless carriers and not Google control when a certain handset can get a new version of Android. A lot of older handsets have but to recieve application updates and probably will not.

On the other hand, Apple's iOS is pushed to iPhones by the business itself and not by AT&T.

CEO David Lieb of app maker Bump Technologies stated last week that 89.7% of iPhone and iPad consumers are on iOS four, a far larger percentage than any one particular release of Android.
