    Nice picture by the way, goes great with the article
    No, we don't all know fragmentation is a problem. I'd challenge you to cite some examples.

    -Certain apps not working on certain phones. For example my Bionic is very capable, but certain apps are not "compatible" with my device. Phones systems are fragmented.
    -A lot phones are still stuck on 2.2 with no update in site.
    -Phones can be released half finished because the set of Android standards from Google is low
    -Carriers can force skins and bloat onto devices even if the manufacturer may not want them there
    ...there are more I am sure.

    My work-issued Droid Titanium (less than 8 months old) on Sprint (I know) runs Eclair. I'm hoping for Froyo on that piece of crap. It's hard to step down and use it when my personal device is a RAXR.

    Manufacturers' skins should have an on/off switch.

    Manufacturers should not be allowed to install anything that cannot be safely, permanently removed.

    These two simple things would go a tremendous way toward improving the overall "product."

    Eclair! Sorry to hear that. Not a single phone should be on 2.1 at all. That's ok, your 2.1 device is differentiated lol.

    I see "a lot", "certain", etc. No specific examples. Good job.
