Google "Let's not mince words here: This 'Android and iPhone Update History' chart [OSNews item] is not a good chart. Oh, it's a pretty chart, to be sure artfully illustrated and researched. But this chart - done up by Michael Degusta at The Understatement and reposted by anyone unable to think clearly, apparently - is not a good chart. Or at the very least, it fails to recognize a fundamental difference between Android and iOS and the iPhone."

"If that’s not “fragmentation,” we don’t know what is.

I think this article is spot on. Andoid doesn't have any update or fragmentation issues; the iPhone is the one that's fragmented!!! And even if Android has any such issues, you shouldn't really care.

Couldn't agree more. Sure has Android some fragmentation, but iPhone also has it.

The thing is, iPhone users as Mac users are used to be left behind after a few OS releases. I doubt that there are many software houses targeting all iPhone generations. Plus iOS does not support all previous models. So the developers are also constrained which APIs they are able across iPhone devices.
