Every two weeks, Google posts a snapshot of the current Android OS fragmentation. With just posting their results we can now see that Android 2.1+ is holding 70% of the market. Even more interesting is that Android 2.2 Froyo has jumped from just 3.3% just a month ago to a now staggering 28.7%. This swift leap forward is mainly due to the amount of handsets that have been updated to 2.2 in the last month including the Motorola Droid, HTC Droid Incredible, and the HTC EVO 4G. Verizon and sprit have been pushing out the 2.2 handsets for their newer devices while, as we all know, Motorola is not doing such a great job of keeping up.

Next month we will see these already impressive numbers grow even more with many very popular devices being released such as the Samsung Galaxy S (Captivate, Epic 4G, Fascinate, Vibrant) already selling over one million devices. Plus Motorola Droid X users should be getting the official 2.2 jump soon, if you already haven’t gotten your hands on the download.
