Recent Chart of Android Fragmentation
Apr 14, 2010 8:31 AM –
Android Fragmentation has been a frustrating problem for consumers, developers, resource websites (like us), carriers and handset manufacturers. However Google and partners are taking steps to close the fragmentation gaps, take a look at the two charts below of data collected by Google of OS versions among handsets in the market in December of 2009 and again recently in April 2010.
Android Platform Versions December 2009
Android Platform Versions April 2010
It shows the gaps closing however more than 60% of handsets are still below 2.0 which is the reason why some consumers cannot find some apps in the Android Market that they see in our Android app reviews as they may be targeted at higher OS versions.
