It seems like every time a new version of iOS or Android is announced, we hear the same mantra of “Android fragmentation” coming from various media outlets and fan-boys.

It’s really an impressive shindig with over 100 sessions, hands-on labs, events, and even the opportunity to connect with Apple engineers and fellow developers — and Google may be laying in wait to steal Apple’s [...]
