At least he recognizes that Apple and Google are the market leaders and will be for a while.
With that said, someone needs to come out with a legit Android tablet. Not some 7 inch glorified smartphone. I'm talking something thats 10 or 11 inches, has full Android capability, and can be put out there and touted by the providers as the flagship tablet of Android to rival the iPad. So far, we have nothing that does that.
Get scared, go on the attack.
Devs have already chimed in against the supposed fragmentation.
Its not fragmented, its:
1. A sign that our platform moves. Quickly.
2. Diverse. How many versions of windows are out there? Same thing here, one cannot expect that every new release of the OS will work with our hardware. At any point with any device, to get the most current features one would have to upgrade the hardware. Heck after ice cream if we're lucky to get that, we'll be left at that level, or a stripped down OS that can run on the original Droid, sans those new features.
That we have a plethora of hardware manufacturers is what eventually will do the same thing to Stevie as happened to Mac vs PC.
I'm not knocking Mac, but you are limited to what one OEM gives out, not counting throwing osx on PC's.
OG Droid w/ Pete's GPA16 w/ stock Kernel using auto OC script. (retired)
LG G2X w/ rooted 2.3.3 leak.
It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.
