If there’s one thing we hear time and again about Android, it’s the F word: fragmentation. While it’s largely just an annoying word used to get under the skin of Android fans, I think in at least one respect, it’s been a valid criticism: the wildly varying experiences Android users have with the post-purchase support and software on their handsets. Now, it’s equally correct to say that’s not really Google’s fault, nor its responsibility – OEMs are the ones dropping the ball in a lot of respects here, and I totally agree with that!
