You can't simply look at Android's market share number and think "OMG"
There are tons of phones running Android... no argument here.
Now subtract all those terrible $80 Android phones sold in China and India from manufacturers you've never even heard of. There's a good chance they are running Gingerbread... today. They are underpowered and of relatively poor quality.
But hey... they increase Android's market share!
