Google working to get Android under Control

shutterstock_83530636.wid250In an effort to take on the issue of fragmentation – one of the most vexing problems with Android – Google is negotiating deals with chipmakers, The Information reports. By working directly with chip partners who implement its designs, Google plans to create hardware that works seamlessly with Android, just as Apple products do with iOS.

According to one estimate, there are over 18,700 distinct versions of Android, compared to Apple’s five or six. This fragmentation of the Android ecosystem has become a major headache for Google, not to mention phone makers and testers. By exerting more control over the Android world, Google would not only make life easier for everyone, but also be in a better position to offer new features more rapidly.
