    Google: Android fragmentation 'is a boogeyman, a red herring'

    Google's Dan Morrill, open source and compatibility program manager in the Android team, just penned a lengthy diatribe against the very concept of fragmentation on the official Android Developers Blog, basically saying it doesn't exist. Actually, the language is a little more colorful:
    "Because it means everything, it actually means nothing, so the term is useless. Stories on 'fragmentation' are dramatic and they drive traffic to pundits' blogs, but they have little to do with reality. 'Fragmentation' is a bogeyman, a red herring, a story you tell to frighten junior developers. Yawn."

    Something I was wondering myself
    Android does where iPhone doesn't. Droid can where Backflip shouldn't

    Its pretty ignorant to say fragmentation is not a real issue. Ask any real developer if fragmentation is an issue with their apps working for 1.5, 1.6, 2.1, and soon, 2.2.
