Default Android Has Fixed Fragmentation! Well, Perhaps Not...

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.insignificantthoughts.com/2011/10/29/think-androids-fragmentation-problems-are-fixed-think-again/' target='_blank'>http://www.insignificantthoughts.co...ed-think-again/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Google recently announced it was going to put an 18 month upgrade requirement on any handset that wants to be Google-certified, meaning if you buy a handset today, you're guaranteed OS updates for 18 months."</em></p><p><img height="549" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1320867315.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 100px; margin-right: 100px;" width="400" /></p><p>A different philosophy indeed! I understand why the hardware manufacturers don't want to push out updates so that people will buy new phones to get the new goodies, but that certainly isn't a very good model if you want to retain customers. Apple is in the hardware business too, but they don't have a problem getting out updates that work on their older handsets, as evidenced by the chart above. Who do you think has the customer's best interests in mind? I know who my money is on, but what are your thoughts?&nbsp;</p>
