Android Version Fragmentation is Being Trampled by Android 2.1

There has only been one true demise for Android and its app developers — fragmentation. This literally meaning that Google releases so many versions of Android that the lazy manufacturers cannot keep pace, and resort to building new phones with old operating systems. At this point in time, there are 3 primary versions of Android.

They consist of nicknames after desserts, and they are Android 1.5 “Cupcake”, Android 1.6 “Donut”, and Android 2.1 “Eclair”. But in the past four months, Google and its phone manufacturuers like Motorola and HTC have been updating their handsets to version 2.1, with fantastic results. As according to Google (or better yet, the Android Developers) in the chart above, Android 2.1 has  a 37.2 percent market share, while 1.6 devices have 28 percent, and Android 1.5 coming in at 34.1.

Although this can all change. You see, in only a few days, Google will possibly debut Android 2.2 “FroYo”. The nickname derives from Frozen Yogurt, and it will do anything but freeze Android, because this release is targeted at making small UI improvements, built-in tethering, Flash 10.1 web browser support, and supposedly finding way to completely nail down fragmentation once and for all, by making the update available on your computer rather than OTA (over-the-air) from your wireless 3G network onto your phone.

Kindle app for Android announced

The new Kindle for Android app will work on all Android 1.6+ devices, which includes popular handsets like the Motorola Droid, Nexus One, Droid Incredible, and MyTouch 3G.  The app itself will strongly resemble the iPhone’s and could possibly be free once it’s released. The app implements the abilities to read, preview, and purchase eBooks just like you would on the Kindle 2 and DX. The same Kindle eBook buying deals and conditions apply, and the app also requires an SD card. A new perfect app for Android? From the looks of it, yes.

As for specs, this little guy has a 3.2-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen, 5MP camera with auto focus and LED flash.

Blackberry Bold 9650 drops onto Sprint, now available to savor your cash

The Blackberry Tour2/9650/it’s actually called Bold 9650 is now available on Sprint CDMA 3G bands. Starting at the comfortable $199 on 2-year agreement, the Bold 9650 is not as hot and fast as the Bold 9700, but the 9650 does add an optical trackpad, which could be a major selling point. But actually, those who know their tech won’t spring for anything running the outdated Blackberry OS 5.0, and instead will be waiting for the unreleased Blackberry 6. And then of course, there’s a smartphone called EVO 4G Is Awesome…..
