Android 'Fragmentation'

When people like Steve Jobs talk about how "fragmented" the world of the Android OS is, they're talking about how an Android device can be from any one of a dozen or so manufacturers and might be running any one of six or so versions of the OS. Now first of all, those people are assuming this is a bad thing. We could probably argue about that for hours. Second of all, they are missing they fact that before Android, those dozens of devices devices would be running dozens of different operating systems. Now, they are all running Android.
