Re: old Android OS not as big a deal anymore

"iFanbois like to talk about Android "fragmentation" but I have yet to see something that won't run on my four year old device."

Google reined in the fragmentation many years ago by forcing handset makers to follow strict UI guidelines if they wanted to use the Android name brand and integrated many of the standard Android services into their proprietary services. Not to mention many of the vendor app stores and applications never provided much income to the handset makers (contrary to what they were told when they signed on to Android).
