After Gingerbread (Android 2.3), Froyo is second most successful Android OS version which controls 35.3% of Android market share. Thereafter it comes Éclair which is running on 9.6% of Android handsets. Donut and cupcake contribute the negligible market share of 1.3% and 0.8% respectively.

Though, Honeycomb is meant only to support Tablet, It’s Apple’s iPad popularity that made it very disgraceful in the tablet market only to put it in survival state. However, the upcoming version of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS)- is more competitive operating System among all Android OS as it a combine form of OS meant for smartphone and Tablet industry.

Now, it’s the time to move from the older version to new version of Android which is compatible on both smartphone as well as on Tablets.
