Compatibility is a better term for Fragmentation


Huge problem with varied chip providers and handset makers, hard to get uniform experience

Carriers further fragment (ie sideloading, Verizon limits Wifi, etc)

OS capabilities (1.0-2.3)

Google showcase phones have inside tracks

Unsupported/non upgraded phones

Developing for different Profiles Architecture/OEM for non showcase is more difficult Neither good or bad, but the way Google builds its ecosystem

Creates a splash, launching a new OS with a new Showcase device

Soon we will get a a point where hardware will be so good, that OS's won't need a showcase device

Another bit of fragmentation people [carriers] fork OS releases [nature of opensource] History Repeating Itself!

Go into markets uncontrolled
