You’ve probably read about Android market fragmentation and wondered just how big a deal it is. This visualisation spells out the problem quite clearly: there are almost 4000 unique Android devices out there running a single app available on Play. That, right there, is fragmentation.

Openness has always been Android’s beauty and its curse. Google’s mobile operating system is available to any manufacturer that wants a slice, meaning you see it everywhere!
