Android Operating System 101

The Android OS is a lot like the Windows operating system you have on your personal computer. However, it is specifically designed to work on small, low power gadgets like smartphones and tablets. It’s intended to run as efficiently as it can be while using as little electricity as possible. Android Inc. received world wide recognition when in August 2005 Google acquired the company after which it promptly announced that they’re going to be making the operating system Open Source to ensure anyone can use it without paying for it or pay any royalties.
