    I saw this article, and thought it was an interesting take referring to Android as a "song" that DJ's can mix.

    I have a Galaxy Nexus (my first Android phone). Do those of you without Nexus devices feel like you're dealing with serious fragmentation?

    Move by NightAngel79, merge by me. :)

    And the F word is fragmentation - from your article -

    Given that Android is Linux, I'm not surprised by the basis or conclusions. :)

    And no, as a non-Nexus owner, I don't feel I'm dealing with fragmentation at all.

    I have three HTCs all running the same OS thanks to them standing behind speedy updates. Each one runs a different version of HTC Sense because each one has different hardware and not all three can run the latest Sense.

    So, it's about choice. I can pull a boat with the one truck but not the other because of the hardware differences I chose. I think it's the same thing in Android phones.

    And my phones, just like the vehicles, really have the same feel and operation overall - so - no confusion here.
