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.

Another thing was that Android was the only proper alternative to iOS.

Symbian was at the the time had too braindead (Symbian C++) that no one would use it for fun programming. The Open C/C++ APIs only helped to make life a little easier.

So every developer that wanted to develop apps and could not target iOS, Android was the best OS to target for.
