Submission + - Android App Fragmentation Revisited (techieinsider.com)

DJRumpy writes: TechieInsider has an interesting write up on fragmentation at the app level and the growing discontent it's creating in the Android community.

CNet is currently running a survey about whether Android phones are upgradable enough and at the moment, 70% of the responders are saying NO. While they only have 715 people responding, it is an indication about how people feel about the Android OS. If the general perception is that they are not, what is that going to mean for the market for those Android phones? Apple has proven that their phones going back to the iPhone 3GS can support the most recent iOS 5 version. There are reasons that the Android OS cannot duplicate this, but they need to come a lot closer than they currently are.
