How do we test when we have many version of hardware and software configurations?

See for interesting data on just how many platforms might need to be testing for a typical mobile app.

Short answer: to many.

So what is a tester to do?

Well as my book talks about I am a big fan of combinatorial testing (you can google on that and look for the tool from NIST called ACT). It is possible to use math to test a large space, such as numerous platforms, in a very scientific approach.

If you are faced with having to test an app on a “good” set of combinations, see this link and then my book of combinatorial test attack 32.
