Over 90% of all Android devices powered by either Froyo or Eclair, Honeycomb scores 0.2%
The two Gingerbread versions, which are 2.3 and 2.3.3., have a share of 0.7% and 1%, respectively, while the tablet-only Honeycomb (with the Motorola XOOM its sole representative) powers 0.2% of all Android devices. The old guard of Google's mobile OS is still present - Donut scored 4.8%, while Cupcake has 3.0%. The poor old Androids.
Is the Android fragmentation a real issue for you?

Honeycomb scored a .2% because it is only on tablets, and there are like only 10 tablets that are officially running Honeycomb.

Nah, fragmentation doesn't seem to be an issue here. I would personally like to know how much the xoom has sold.

With this pie chart google is triing to prove that they are IDIOTS (sorry for language). We can not look at statistic of how many use 2.2 and so on, if not everyone have an oportunaty to chose... To make correct statistic, they shoudl show how many of 2.3 enabled devices run 2.3, 2.2 and so on...
Look at LG Optimus. Oficialy you can have 2.1, unoficaly 2.2. But where is 2.3? or 3.0?

OK. . . Honeycomb on 0.2% of devices.
Android sold ~70 million handsets last year. I expect about ~100 Million android devices in the wild if not more.
100M X 0.2 = 20 Million
That's a lot of devices running a tablet OS. . . more than the iPad's 15M.
I guess the Nook Color is doing well as are some other tablets the XDA devs are hacking.

To Honeycomb FTW:
0.2/=0.2%, elementary school math, my friend. So, teh result is 200K Honeycomb tablets. Still, it seems a bit high

It's not about what they'll not upgrade to, it's about compatibility of newer more advanced software trying to be run on older hardware. Try trying to run Windows7 on a computer originally designed for Windows 95. You have to beef up the hardware to even have it pass 7's compatibility check, and even then it's not going to be pretty.

What are you talking about? The HTC legend has the same CPU, and it now has 2.2 available to it.
