Much has been said about "fragmentation" in the Android ecosystem. Many claim that the diversity of hardware and software is a negative aspect of Android, drawing comparisons to the more homogenous platform Apple has created. To me this is shortsighted. Would it be easier if there was only one type of Android device? In the very short term maybe, but then we'd miss out on the kind of progress that comes when many different types of ideas are given a chance. We should embrace this diversity, and apply these principles in our daily lives.
