Limited Truphone for Android Support a Sign of Android Platform Fragmentation Issue

I didn’t cover Truphone’s Android version update earlier this month…

Wi-Fi calling now available on Truphone for Android

That may have been a good thing since I may have neglected to read the second to the last sentence which reads: The new Truphone Android application is compatible with the HTC G1, HTC Magic and HTC Hero. This was, apparently, the case for a lot of other people who tried to install and use truphone with other Android phones like the Droid. Truphone released another announcement a few days later that I just picked up on…

Truphone for Android Release 3.0

…that notes its limited Android compatibility. I wonder if this kind of platform support fragmentation is a sign of things to come for Android users. Google and its hardware partners need to get their version act together soon.
