Google Fragmentation. You'll often hear people say this is a major problem with Google's Android platform; there are many devices running multiple different versions of the mobile operating system, leading to fragmentation. Dan Morrill, Android's open source and compatibility program manager, addresses this issue in a blog post, and details what Google is doing to fight it. The gist: it's a non-issue - according to Google, that is.

I believe Google's anti-fragmentation contract also specifies that agreeing companies wont create alternative SDKs to the official SDK. Makes good sense, fragmentation in developer tools could also create quite a mess (look at Symbian).
