Android OS on Mobile

Android is the name of the Mobile Operating system owned by Google now.

As we all know, today the mobile phone applications have been developed by Java libraries.

It allows developers to write managed code in the Java language, controlling the device via Google-developed Java libraries.

The first phone to run the Android operating system was the HTC Dream, released on 22 October 2008

By the end of 2009 there will be at least 18 phone models using Android worldwide, according to Google. In addition to the mobile devices that ship with Android, some users have been able (with some amount of hacking, and with limited functionality) to install it on mobile devices shipped with other operating systems.
