日前，据谷歌最新数据显示，Android 2.2（Froyo）登台后，不少手机平台运行系统正纷纷向Froyo看齐。要知道在今年8月，仅谷歌的Nexus One手机可以运行Froyo系统，但这一局面当月即被Sprint Evo、Droid 2和Droid Incredible等手机平台相续打破，目前已有四分之一的Android平台运行Froyo系统。
Android 2.2支持运行Adobe的Flash、移动热点、加速浏览器，以及一些升级的企业功能。另外，它还支持Google的Voice Actions功能，该功能允许用户通过声音来输入内容、控制手机等。
“存储残片”问题并非Android一家独有，其他手机平台也难免如此。许多新的黑莓手机（RIMM）至今无法运行上个月刚亮相的黑莓 6.0操作系统，苹果（AAPL）在上周也声称iPhone 3G不能使用GameCenter在线游戏平台；尽管iPhone 3G产品上架仅数月时间，却仍然只能运行iOS 4这种过时的版本，即便如此也还是存在一些功能瑕疵，甚至遭到用户投诉；另外，苹果第一代iPods和iPhones则根本连iOS 4.0软件都无法兼容。
Froyo blasts through to a quarter of all Android devices
The latest numbers from Google (GOOG) have the Android platform finally starting to adopt Android 2.2 (Froyo), as high profile updates have come to major handsets. Unless you were doing some hacking, in August, your only Froyo-enabled handset was the Google Nexus One. That was reflected in the numbers. Android 2.2 was barely on the pie chart (below) at below 5% of all devices.
However, in August, The Sprint EVO, then the Droid, Droid 2 and Droid Incredible all saw 2.2 updates.
That was enough to push Froyo to a quarter of all Android devices. This month is the first time all Android 2.x devices passed the 70% barrier as well. That stat is even more amazing in that AT&T last month released two different “high end” Android devices (Dell Streak and Sony Xperia X10) that are still somehow running Android 1.6.
Android 2.2 allows for running Adobe’s Flash, Mobile hotspots, much faster OS and browsing as well as some improved enterprise features. Most importantly, it also enable’s Google’s Voice Actions which allow the control of the device and typing by voice.
The numbers are following a familiar pattern which show that Android 2.2, as it gets released on more devices (notably Samsung’s popular Galaxy line), will gobble up market share. Meanwhile, only a few devices that are running older versions of the Android OS are still around. Even a lot of those (like Sony and Dell again) are promised to be updated to 2.2 and beyond.
This ‘fragmentation issue’ isn’t just an Android problem. Most newer BlackBerry (RIMM) devices won’t run the new BlackBerry 6.0 OS that debuted with the BlackBerry Torch last month. Also, Apple (AAPL) announced this week that its iPhone 3G wouldn’t be able to use its new Gamecenter online gaming program. The iPhone 3G was on store shelves just a few months ago and can only run a stripped down version of iOS 4, and even though some features are disabled, there has been some outcry about its performance. Apple’s first generation iPods and iPhones can’t use the iOS 4.0 software.（source：CNN）
