loconet writes “This article in Gizmodo claims that Android’s fragmented model is harming it, but Google has the power to save it. The rumored Google Phone could be a ploy to upset the wireless industry, or it could be an expensive niche device. Either way, it would be a bid to take Android back from the companies that seem hell-bent on destroying it. ‘…once handset manufacturers (and carriers, through handset manufacturers) have built their own version of Android, they’ve effectively taken it out of the development stream. Updating it is their responsibility, which they have to choose to uphold. Or not! Who cares? The phones are already sold.”
