Google Google's CEO, Larry Page, has just published a letter titled "2012 Update from the CEO". It's a state of the union-sort of thing, mostly filled with the usual stuff of how great Google supposedly is (we'll decide that for ourselves, why thank you). There's one bit in it, though, that caught my eye - something that puts Android's supposed fragmentation issues in a rather different light.

Simple failure to think outside the box? At the time these guys started developing Android, java would have been the language of choice for mobile applications (much bigger share than Windows CE for example), so maybe they just wanted to provide a path of least resistance for developers...
