gives the best rebuttal yet of the ridiculous Android fragmentation chart published by the other day.
As flawed the chart is, even Phil missed one of the most egregious errors of the chart is the indication that all generations of the iPhone have been updated to the current software which is absolutely untrue. In fact the first gen iPhone was cut off from updates when iOS 4 was released 16 months ago. The iOS 5 compatibility chart on the Apple website http://www.apple.com/ios/features.html shows that the 3G and the first two generations of the iPod Touch are no longer capable of running iOS5 and as Phil accurately points out, the 3GS and 4 are incapable of running several iOS5 features such as Siri.

This is not a good chart Let’s not mince words here: This “Android and iPhone Update History” chart is not a good chart. Oh, it’s a pretty chart, to be sure artfully illustrated and researched.
