Android

When Google joined the cellular phone market, they created Android, their first smartphone operating system. Based on Linux, the Android OS promises power, flexibility, and extendability.HTC was the first to introduce a device that will run the Android OS, the G1. Android is not only an OS but a software platform. This gives all cellular manufacturers the ability to build new device that can use Android.
