For six months, the team behind the Android app OpenSignalMaps tracked the devices where their app ended up, and their findings paint a good picture of just how difficult it is for Android developers to deal with fragmentation. After 681,900 downloads in 195 countries, OpenSignalMaps was running on a staggering 3,997 distinct models.
