Android OS distribution March 2011

Normally Google updates its Android OS distribution numbers at the beginning of the month, but for March, they decided to wait until the middle of the month to give up figures. Of course, with the XOOM's launch, this is the first time that we get to see Honeycomb factored into the situation, and at the end of a two week period ending yesterday, it appeared on 0.2 percent of all Android devices accessing the Market. Android 2.3.3 also made its first appearance on Google's pie chart after having been pushed out to the Nexus One and S. Version 2.3.3 is now on 1 percent of all Androids, outpacing 2.3 which is only on 0.7 percent. Meanwhile, Froyo has made its way onto nearly two-thirds of all devices (What fragmentation?), appearing on 61.3 percent of all Android products, while Eclair shrunk to 29 percent, down 2.4 percent from last month. Finally, Cupcake and Donut have continued their descent, finishing at 3 and 4.8 percent, respectively.

As usual, Google's numbers are pretty interesting, especially since they'll allow us to get an idea of how well the Honeycomb tablets are doing. While 3.0 certainly doesn't have a huge share just yet, it's important to note that the XOOM is the only device out there with it right now, and it hasn't even been available for a month yet. On the smartphone side of things, it's great to see Froyo continue to land on devices in the wild, even if it isn't the latest version of the OS. As usual, Android owners, feel free to shout out which version of the OS you're currently running in the comments!

Anh-Tuan Le Gotta give the Cyanogen crew props. Never thought I'd see Gingerbread on the myTouch Slide, but it's smooth as butter even at the RC stage.

John Skelton @ Zach: Actually it is real gingerbread when you root your phone and put it on there. It is only a ROM when there is custom stuff on there like Cyanogen.

Rich Hamilton Some have to take it on their own to get froyo on their phone since they'll never see the light of day with the upgrade the only thing I dislike about android phones.
James Lac
James Lac Wonder why 2.3 is taking so long. Only 2 phones have official update Nexus 1 and S. If the n1 can run GB the og droid 1 should be able to.
