Android 2.1 Use Is Up

Ainsley Jones

The number of users migrating to the latest versions of Android is growing, claims Google. The number of handsets accessing the Android Market using Android 2.1 has increased to 55.5 percent, Erictric reports. Last month, just 50 percent of handsets accessing the Android Market were using Android 2.1.


The EVO 4G and Droid X, which both run Android 2.1 and have experienced strong early sales, probably have a lot to do with the migration to Android 2.1. Only 3.3 percent of devices are running Android 2.2, according to Fone Arena. The Nexus One, which was recently discontinued by Google, is the only device running Android 2.2 for the moment. Verizon is expected to launch the Droid 2 next month and it is rumored to be the first native Android 2.2 smartphone.
