Android Stats - September 2010

According to the latest numbers made available on the Android Developers blog,  70% of all the active Android phones are running on Android 2.x.

This is quite a huge jump if you think that back in May 63,6% of all active phones were running on 1.5 and 1.6,  so the Android 2.1 and 2.2 jumped from 30% to 70% in only 3 months.

This change in stats was caused by the big number of new mobile phones released lately but also due the large number of upgrades including the HTC trio of the Nexus One, EVO 4G and Desire handsets that now run on 2.2.

A big advantage of this achievement is that makes it easier for developers to create apps.  Less fragmentation means that developers need to take in account less variables when creating apps, which means that we can all enjoy better quality apps :D.
