This update is an even bigger milestone for Google: the latest version of Android is now on par with the combined use of 1.5 and 1.6 – at this rate, the next time the chart updates, we should finally see 2.1 as the most used version of Android. We suspect that this change has to do with a few high profile 2.1 rollouts (the HTC and Samsung Moment saw the official 2.1 releases hit stateside), as well as an increase in devices that are hitting the market with 2.1 pre-installed. Unfortunately, despite the growth of 2.1, this still means that 50% of users are using either 1.5 or 1.6, so there’s still a ways to go before we can reasonably say that fragmentation has been beat.
