As far as what to target, if you want to maximize your sales android 1.6 is probably the best versions to aim for, it'll cover something like 90% of android devices if I remember correctly, 2.0 is something like 60%, and 2.2 is something like 20%. Google probably have proper stats on that available somewhere.

Actually, most android handsets are now running 2.1+ although they don't have that much of a lead over 1.6. Furthermore, if something is developed for 1.6, that does NOT necessarily mean it will run on 2.1+ as alot of things changed in the SDK in between those versions. Your best bet is to get a 2.1 or 2.2 phone and develop your apps for 1.6. If they work on the 2.1 and 2.2 phone, they will work for 1.6.
