Gingerbread now on the majority of Android phones

It’s that time of the month again when Google reports what percentage of Android phones have what versions of Android running. Last month Gingerbread was sitting at 44% of all Android phones. For the 14-day period ending December 1, Gingerbread showed up on 50.6% of all Android phones.

So basically it took about one year to get on half of the Android phones. This is not good news folks. With Ice Cream Sandwich just released, does anyone want to take a guess on what percentage of devices will have ICS this time next year? I said it before, and I will say it again, if you want ICS and you’re not a hacker, don’t buy a device unless ICS is already on it. Promises of a month or two down the road don’t mean a thing these days.
