Android Fragmentation - what is it? Should we be worried? How do we deal with it?
We've all heard about Android fragmentation, but lets take some time to dig a little deeper..
Just how fragmented is the Android ecosystem, do people just like complaining about this or do we really have hundreds and hundreds of combinations to deal with?
OK, so it's fragmented, but it's the same OS right, just in a slightly different flavour? should we be really worried?
OK, OK so it's fragmented and we really do need to deal with, but what can we do about it?
Actually as it turns out, there is a fair amount we can do to deal with it, from the perspective of someone who's just fresh from a bout with the fragmentation fairy I'm going try and answer these questions.
