    Android Likely To Fragment Between Itself?

    While alot of us seem to understand that each revision of the OS adds to the complexity of developers to get the next version of their apps out, the complexity of versions, revisions, custom UI's, and more all pose problem for developers. The following article is a good read for those who have not seen it yet.

    Android's rapid growth has some developers worried - CNN.com
    Resistance is futile.

    One smart move Apple has made in this is pushing hard to get people updating their iPhones to the same OS level. Of course, they're on practically identical hardware, too, which makes it very easy to remain compatible, but much less interesting from a buyer's perspective. Apple will have to deal with some of these issues, too, if they ever advance beyond 480x320 pixel screens.

    And other hardware, too. My sister saw one of the barcode scanner apps on my DROID, and found something similar for her iPhone... only, the camera prior to the 3GS has a fixed-focus lens. Not useful for scanning barcodes, sadly.

    I think the phone companies need to be forward about user's getting upgraded versions of the OS, much as possible. Unfortunately, while this is kind of S.O.P. for computer companies like Apple, many CE companies are not very good about offering updates, much less letting consumers know about them. This needs to change when you have a device that is, really, a full fledged, general purpose computer.

    Oh i definately agree about it being a problem for apple in the future. There have already been speculation about iphones going to other networks as modified phones, some smaller, some with certain features, some without. If that happens, apple will be in the same boat.
