Majority of Android devices are on version 2.2If you want to know what version of Android the majority of people are using nowadays, the answer is Froyo. According to some data collected over the past 14 days – 65.9% of people who accessed the Android Market were using Android 2.2. The second highest amount of users was for Android 2.1 at 24.5%. Android 3.0 or better known as Honeycomb makes up only 0.3% of the results. It’s no surprise that developers aren’t focusing on creating apps for Honeycomb – hardly anybody uses it!

It’s not surprising after all, seeing how there aren’t many Android tablets on the market, and Google hasn’t released the source code for the operating system to the public yet. Android 2.3/2.3.3 is on the rise with only 4% of devices running it but expect those numbers to increase this year as manufacturers start pushing out updates from Froyo to Gingerbread.

So if you’re worried about apps not working on your Android device, if your phone is on Froyo of Gingerbread, you shouldn’t have to worry for awhile – it’s going to be awhile before Android 2.2 is replaced.
