Phandroid reports, “It’s that time again, time for another update to Android’s platform distribution numbers. This time around, Google’s changing up some things. First off, they’ve completely done away with Donut and Eclair. This isn’t because collectively they only accounted for 1.3% of Android devices last month, but because the Google Play Store app is only compatible with Android 2.2 on up. Since Google provides these numbers as a tool for developers when building apps, we suppose it only makes sense.
“Also new for August is Google now only accounting for Android devices that have pinged Google Play within the last 7 days, as opposed to 14 in previously. This should help weed out devices that really aren’t being used.”
For the month of August, Gingerbread is down to 30.7% from 33.1% in July. Ice Cream Sandwich is also down to 21.7% from 22.5% in July. Jelly Bean is going strong at 40.5% from 40.5% in July.
