Froyo vs. Gingerbread -- Which Dessert Reigns Supreme?

Authored by: Steven Blum — Nov 4, 2011

If a popularity contest were held today, which version of Android would win?

In the one corner we have the soft serve, low-fat dessert beloved by Yoga instructors and teenage sorority girls and in the other corner we have the classic Christmas cookie designed for optimal milk-dunking.

In the battle for Android supremacy, is Froyo the dessert king or has the title been stolen by Gingerbread?

If you take a look at the infographic below, you can see that Gingerbread is rapidly gaining in popularity. As of yesterday, over 44% of all devices with access to Android Market are equipped with a version of Gingerbread. Last month that number was around 38.7% Froyo has slipped into 2nd place, but 40.7% of devices still run on that older version.
