Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

You make it sound as its something bad.


It is bad. Current estimates are that fewer than 4-7% of tablet users will have access to 4.1 for SEVERAL YEARS. Why? Because it takes Android-based vendors a lot of time to upgrade to more recent builds. And, by that point, Google has created new versions, etc. In other words, the fragmentation means that users have no idea what apps will run on their machines because the ecosystem is so busted.

Do you even use Android? If not, why do you care?
