Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Ubuntu has come under a decent amount of flack over the past few months, particularly over their decision to use the 'Dash Search' to return results from Amazon by default in their most recent release.

Fragmentation has been used around Linux a long time before the advent of the iPhone. All the different versions of Mandriva/Mandrake etc, many here today gone tomorrow distros etc etc etc all contributed to the use of Fragmentation as a way of describing the overall Linux ecosystem.
Nowt to do with Apple methinks.

As for it's use with respect to Android Phones then there is a good deal of it around. How many versions of Android let alone the Manufacturers re-spin's are in us on phones today? There are even new Samsung phones for sale running Android 2.3. wtf?
Of course there is fragmentation and the device makers are solely to blame for it. All they want to do is ship a device and get their money for it. They don't care about support (in general and there are some exceptions). This was one reason why I ditched my Android Smartphone and went back to a decade old Nokia 6310. IT actually does everything I need from a phone.
