Froyo is installed in more devices than any other Android build
Surprisingly, 3.5% of phones running Google's open source OS are still powered by Android 1.6 while 2.7% have Android 1.5 under the hood. But what about the newer Gingerbread versions? Android 2.3 can be found on .8% of Android phones while Android 2.3.3 represents 1.7% of the outstanding handsets. The Honeycomb build, optimized for tablets, is on .2% of Android devices.
As time passes, you can expect the older builds to start dropping off in numbers and as Android users start to replace their older models with newer dual-core, 4G enabled phones, we should see the majority of Android phones running Froyo and higher. Considering the features that Android 2.2 brings to the table, it will be some time before that build starts to drop off significantly, but the percentage of devices running Eclair should drop sharply as 2011 comes to a close.

Hmmmm...what would be a quick way to boost those Froyo numbers? Can you think of anything, Samsung and VZW? Anything? Crickets?

I think all of the updates should be stocked so that there wouldn't be very much delays on updates and for the OS to not have so much lag...

This shows why Google needs an "anti-fragmentation" program. To ensure that the latest updates and upgrades get on devices asap. There's no reason any device running 2.1 or 2.2 shouldn't have 2.3 already.
