STATS: Android 2.1 now on 55% of connected Android phones

Google’s Developer site has, regularly as a clockwork bit of the internet, updated its breakdown of Android users – stats it compiles by counting connections to the Android Market through the various handset types out there.

Android 2.1 has now pushed further into the lead, thanks to the arrival of many, many new phones and the gradual updating process of older models – while Android 1.5 drops by a few percent.

Good to see Android 2.2 raising its stake, too – that was on 1.8% of Android phones in the previous data and is now on 3.3% this this. The Nexus One obviously carved itself out quite a following.

  1. This is all the mroe impressive considering several ‘high end’ devices, such as X10 and its variants are only running 1.6!

    That’s not too bad. I imagine it would rise to 75% for 2.1 if Motorola upgraded those darn Cliq’s/Devours etc.

    I wonder how much of that is growth in terms of new sales e.g. Droid X and how much is from OTA upgrades.
