Just about three years after the introduction of the T-Mobile G1, the world’s first Android cell phone, we interruption to investigate what the little green man has given us. Of course, we’ve realized that the OS has been extremely occupied in the United States and around the globe, yet we truly had no clue exactly how bustling it was. What’s more, on the off chance that we extended the rundown past handsets not with U.S. transporters, it would be significantly more.
Keep in mind that it wasn’t such a long time ago when Android was only an idea. What’s more, not well before that, the main android we knew was Data on “Star Trek.” But now as its piece of the overall industry keeps on developing and the OS has arrived in the tablet space, Android has risen as a powerhouse in the portable space.
A great deal individuals thoroughly understand Android, iOS and Windows Phone – and BlackBerry 10, as well.
In any case, there are a few, outside the quick paced universe of innovation, uncertain about what any of these words really mean.
For example, I as of late passed an iPhone on to my mum and the main thing she asked, favor her, was whether it was an Android telephone.
“No,” I advised her, “it’s iOS-fueled on the grounds that Apple makes it. Android is Google’s stage.”
She gestured, yet I could tell she was still somewhat confounded.
So I figured, turf it, I will complete a piece on this, something that’ll clarify what Android is, the means by which it works, and why it’s not quite the same as, say, iOS, in a way anyone uncertain about innovation – your mum, father, cousin or grandparent – can without much of a stretch get it.
So here goes…

Bits of gossip about Google entering the cell phone space achieved breaking point following the dispatch of Apple’s unique iPhone in 2007.
Numerous normal Google to take after Apple’s lead and discharge a cell phone fueled by exclusive programming.
This, obviously, didn’t occur and Google rather uncovered a Linux-based, open-source working framework, which it appeared in 2007 close by the Open Handset Alliance – a gathering of 86 equipment, programming, and media transmission organizations gave to propelling open guidelines for cell phones.
Apple, Microsoft, RIM, and Nokia all had their particular ‘cell phone’ stages well in progress when Google discharged the primary variant of Android in 2007.
