re: Android Devs Turned Off By Fragmentation
Then they should do what devs do on Windows. They have a basic set of requirements and if those aren't met then the the software won't run. They should develop for 2.3/4.x and be done with it. This complaining about fragmentation is SO old. They should not worry about 2.2 and below .. they should not worry about that paygo handset that someone buys at 7-11 that runs 2.2 or 2.1 or whatever. Their software doesn't have to work on 1.5 and up just because people keep their handsets for more then a few years. iOS applications do not run on the 1st or 2nd iPhone but they are still in service. And the feature shaved version of the current iOS on the 3G/3GS counts as fragmentation ..
This topic will never, ever die because Google will not go all dictator on the handset makers .. period. So the devs need to make a choice about what the want to support and just DO it.
