BECAUSE... nothing is the same from phone to phone, nor app to app.. nothing is standardize.
What is remarkable & what I don't understand, is why you need proof, or are even questioning me. Android's lack of full service is a known entity in the industry (hence the article) and the reason so many people don't accept Android. Does Android even support the real internet yet, or are 94% of those user still not on ICS ..?
It is, as if.. Android is ur first phone and you don't know any better/different..?
Android doesn't even come with a word processor.. it is not standard, thus you must "App it".
That^ is proof enough that you have to build an Android OS using Apps, instead of getting a professional OS. But don't put the burden on me... don't be afraid to ask uerself the same question(s). If you didn't have an "App store" would Android even matter to you..? Be viable for you..?
What do you use a phone for... most likely for entertainment, in which case a Kindle Fire & app store is as valid as your phone. (Poor kid).
