Android distribution in April

By: Infocellular
We’ve just been given the Android version distribution report for April and there doesn’t appear to be any major changes in the existing trends. Froyo keeps gaining market share, but this time its growth rate is almost matched by Gingerbread. Honeycomb has gained some ground too, but it’s still by far the rarest distribution in existence.

Froyo still remains the biggest gainer, adding 2% to its already huge market share. And while the growth rate of Android 2.2 has been reduced nearly twice compared to March, when it gained about 4%, with a total of 65.9% it will remain the most popular version for at least another year.

The smartphone distribution that came to replace Froyo, Gingerbread is starting to pick up the pace and has even managed to surpass the market shares of the (long outdated) 1.5 Cupcake and 1.6 Donut versions. Gingerbread 2.3 and 2.3.3 have registered a total increase by 1.5% to 4%. For comparison, Gingerbread only gained about 1% in March.
