The problem of developing for Android

This morning I saw this great chart by Michael Degusta that clearly shows Android’s poor support for its phones. This is the reason why enterprises are choosing iOS devices over Android ones. This is why many company choose to develop for iOS first. This is why many developers choose to stick with iOS only.

Few months ago I bought a Nexus One, so that I could test some Android apps we are developing at 39, and yesterday I found out that Ice Cream Sandwich (the upcoming Android version) won’t be available since the phone is too obsolete. Now, this is a phone that is only few months older than the iPhone 3gs, that is still sold, supported and updated by Apple.
