    ANDROID


    Android is a Linux based operating system intended for mobile phones. It is developed official led by Google by the Open Handset Alliance. Google purchased Android Inc. in 2005.

    Android is programmed in C, C++, Python, Java and is an open source software.

    Android Inc. was founded in California in October 2003 by (1) Andy Rubin who is also the co-founder of Danger, (2) Rich Miner who is the co-founder of Wildfire Communications, Inc., (3) Nick Sears, VC at T-Mobiles and (4) Chris White who is the headed design and interface development at WebTV.

    Google acquired Android Inc. on August 17, 2005, making Android Inc. a wholly owned subsidiary of Google. And thus it went into the wise hands of Google. Teams at Google developed the OS powered by Linux kernels.

    Here is the list of Android versions developed by Google---
    ___________________________
