Thursday December 6, 2012:

Gingerbread turns 2 years old today.

No. Not the not the cookies you left in the freezer two years ago expecting to one day eat but that got hidden behind the Deer Meat your cousin gave you that is hidden behind the Rainbow Trout your uncle bob gave you a few months ago.

It is the birthday of Android OS 2.3 today.
Though 2.3.3 to 2.3.7 became the most widely used Android versions ever, it was 2.3 - 2.3.2 that was the beginning of the things. Between 2.3 to 2.3.7 50.8% of all android devices run Gingerbread. More than any other Code Name to date. Almost twice as many as Ice Cream Sandwich and a whopping 7+ more times than Jelly Bean. In fact, Gingerbread is running on more phones and tablets than all other Android Versions to date.

Those are pretty darn impressive numbers when you think about the fact that 3 other versions have come out since it was first introduced.

So, Happy Birthday Gingerbread. We wish you well and wonder how many devices will still be using you come next December the 6th.
