    Welcome to the forums! :D

    Hmm, I once saw a pie chart showing the "market share" of each version of the Android OS. I put that in quotes because it was only Android, no other OS'es. If you can find that chart, it may give you some info.
    I believe the gist of it was that a surprisingly large number of devices are still "trapped" on v1.5, although obviously we are now seeing a lot more top-of-the-line v2.1 phones, and that segment will only get bigger.

    Mostly, if you target v1.5 you should be safe, except for the few things that've changed in the API. I urge you to read up on Android API Levels and the related topics.

    There's another consideration, though: device capabilities. Depending on what kind of game you want to do, some devices may not have the sensors and components you want to use, but you can write code to detect that and handle it gracefully.
