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."

A legitimate article about fragmentation

The author of the article is trying to point out the differences between the two not in a technical light, but on a consumer/satisfaction level. I can't really question the article, it is very clear: Even if it is closed and full of rules, if you buy Apple you get at least some extended support.

Choosing Android is like playing Russian roulette in terms of support.

The apps is an entirely different issue.

All in all, I'll just keep my cell phone for calls and everything else on my ipod touch. No carriers or other crap to worry about there ;)
