    Is there any meaning of "Android"?

    I am asking this question here because it was asked to me in an Interview. I have done android application development course and was appearing in an Interview. The person on other side asked me, "What is the meaning of Android?". I was totally silent. Is there anyone who know the answer of this question?

    Android is an operating system built on Linux. Nowadays it is being developed by Google. This operating system is now used in smartphones & tablets.

    Like your computer OS is generally Windows or MAC similarly your smartphones have android OS. It has been open sourced by Google.
