The engineers of the Google Android team claim to be working diligently to make sure that Android updates are given to new devices in a timely fashion.
During the Google I/O developer conference, 11 members of the Android development team answered the questions of the audience of developers. The team did acknowledge the fragmentation issue with Android’s; however, they said the plan is to continue at a rapid pace of innovation.
Engineering director for the Android platform, Dave Burke, had this to say, “This is something we think about a lot.” “And we’re working internally to streamline the development process and make the software more layered.”
As Google rapidly released software updates, Fragmentation has been a major issue for Android powered devices since its inception. Device makers and operators have not been able to keep up. What this means to the consumer is, some devices don’t get updates for months while others do not get the new software at all.
Literally, there are millions of devices still running Android 2.2 Froyo and 2.3 Gingerbread. Google originally released these two versions in May and December of 2010. Google has extremely altered the Android programming interfaces since then.
