It was just over a month ago when we posted the Android Platform distribution statistics that saw Android 2.2 at 45% and Android 2.3 at 38%. One month later we can see that Gingerbread (2.3-2.3.7) has taken the lead at Froyo’s expense. Gingerbread is now sitting at 44.9% and Froyo has slipped to 40.7% — a loss of 4.3%.

Hopefully with the launch of Ice Cream Sandwich in the next month or so, we’ll see both Gingerbread and Froyo slip in percentage and ICS grow to 50% and above. A boy can dream though, right?

Well I am part of that percentage shift. I rooted my HTC Legend and therefore upgraded to GB.

I wonder how many of that percentage shift is people rooting and installing custom ROMs?

I’m annoyed that there is no separate figures for all the different point releases of Froyo, and that Gingerbread is lumped into 2 groups in the results.
