Before CEO Tim Cook handed over the iOS 7introduction chores to other Apple execs at the company's Worldwide Developer Conference, he took a moment to slag Android and its OS fragmentation in an appeal for the hearts and minds of developers.
Google has made a change to the terms and conditions of the Android SDK (software development kit) to explicitly prohibit developers from taking any action that may lead to the fragmentation of Android.
It has been sixteen months since the first Android Phone entered the market. Since, then Google has released four major versions of the Operating System. These frequent major updates are the cause of Android's fragmentation issue, with hardly any new smartphone running on the latest Android.
