    I was looking through my HTC wildfire, I really wanted to get "angry birds," but I couldn't find it. I looked on google why this could be, and I finally found out that it was widely agreed that because of "android's fragmentation" I couldnt play the most popular phone game.... thats basically what I found on google

    Is this true? I cant play this game because of a fundamental problem with android? I spend hundreds of dollars on this phone, and I cant play what other android phones can play, thats a real problem not with this phone, but with the platform itself.

    All iphones can use all iphone apps.... All WP7 devices can play all WP7 apps... however all android phones arent equal?

    This phone is better specced than even the old iphone 3g, which can easily play angry birds, so its not a hard ware issue.

    Anyways, Im not sure if I can put up with this. I dont know if its the devs fault, or androids fault, but its looking like android is to blame, and I might have to switch to another platform if this is true.

    So when you search for Angry Bird on the Google Market, what comes up?

    If that still doesn't work, try searching for Rovio.

    i think the game wasnt made for this resolution, meaning that android's development scheme allow fragmentation of applications

    Android fragmentation is not a problem as the Market hides app that are incompatible with your device, and Rovio said they will release a version for QVGA devices.

    I'm sorry, iOS only had the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad whilst Android has many other devices, Windows Phone 7 sets a high-standard requirement.

    You should've check the phone's specs before you even buy it, HVGA or above is recommended, and this phone is for people who are on budget.

    Don't tell me about the iPhone or Windows Phone 7 as they have much higher prices than the HTC Wildfire, so it is not an excuse for not getting a higher-end device.

    If Google restricted the specs for Android phones (600 Mhz or above, HVGA or above etc.) There will be no budget smartphones for people who are on budget, which makes smartphone less adoptable by people, thus market share will be lowered.
