The 11,868 devices that Android app has to work on

With the iPhone 5s being uninspiring, and my Nexus 7 growing on me I've been looking at a move away from Apple for my phone recently, and with that I've been following a few more Android blogs when this popped up!

When OpenSignal did a similar study last year (it gets the data from devices that have recently downloaded its app, which helps users manage their signal strength), it found 3,997 Android models from 599 brands. This year’s study found 11,868 models across 1,778 brands in over 200 countries. Almost 3,000 of these devices appeared only once in OpenSignal’s sample of 682,000 downloads. As more companies in developing countries get in on the handset game, the Android ecosystem can only get more diverse.
