Android’s fragmentation problem persists. A month after its introduction, Jelly Bean accounts for 0.8 per cent of Android devices. Ice Cream Sandwich is now at 15.9 per cent, up from 10.9 per cent last month. Gingerbread is still the largest, with 60.6 per cent of devices.
Android is also slightly modified for every manufacturer, and then again for every device they produce. These numerous little iterations can make developing on Android a headache. Each of these little differences can make an app buggy or incompatible. It also makes it expensive for carriers and manufacturers to test versions of Android on all these different devices.
