Google's Android 'designed to drive fragmentation'

Ben Hutchings

Fragmentation?

Android hardly adds much to fragmentation when there's already Series 60, PalmOS, Windows Mobile, UIQ, Blackberry, J2ME, iPhone, various other Linux-based platforms and Qualcomm's own BREW. Surely what Google is really interested in is portability of "rich" Internet-based applications, which they expect to dominate. Qualcomm is presumably unhappy that BREW hasn't really taken off, but that's their own fault for locking it down so much.
