Fragmentation Isn’t That Bad, Until You See It

Android is constantly accused of being a fragmented platform, but how bad is it? The image above is a fraction of Hong Kong developer Animoca’s 400+ arsenal of Android development devices. The developer has over 70 million downloads on Android under its belt, and it needs to be assured that everything will be compatible. That’s right, every single one of their apps is tested on over 400 different Android devices.

Animoca mostly targets the Asian market, and one of its biggest concerns is the number of devices coming out a China. Most of these devices are low-end, and there are so many that it’s hard to keep up. What do you think of the Android app development process? Should Google do something to simplify it?
