We're not totally sure that Android 2.1 users will be happy to be bundled in with 2.2 consumers -- after all, there's
plenty in Froyo

that's not available on

-- but the fact remains that a cool 83 percent of actively used Android phones right now run one of the two latest iterations. A reminder is merited to say that by "active" we mean those that accessed the Android Market over the foregoing two weeks -- which might have a slight bias toward over-representing the newer phones with folks either abandoning their Cupcake and Donut handsets or simply not searching for new apps for them. Either way, we reckon it's good to see such
nice big slices

taken up by Android's most advanced versions, it seems almost a shame that
Gingerbread's arrival

will soon disrupt things all over again. For now, we're off to our delicatessen, all this food talk's given us the munchies.
