Android, Catch the Wave of the future! Android is not just for mobile phones. This means that one day that Android is more important than the iPhone, more important than that of Windows, and more important than any particular device. Android is an open source operating system created by Google for its main use in smart phones, and is currently in use in many mobile phones as the Motorola Droid, Droid Eris HTC, the HTC Hero, HTC Desire, MyTouch slide 3G and Dell Streak. Recently there has been a developer version of the Android operating system for use in the x86 archictecture, which eventually will allow Android to be ported to tablets, netbooks and even laptops and desktops, as well as in many other devices, such as set-top boxes, video game systems, control systems for home and other things that not even thought of yet. Android is written in Java on a modified Linux kernel. Due to its open architecture, it is easy for developers to create applications that run on the Android operating system. Unlike Apple's closed architecture, with its draconian guards, anyone who is capable of encoding can write an application to run on Android. And if Google rules are followed, the application will be available to all Android users. What this means to you is that if you want your cell phone to make something that currently do not, and there's an app for Android that it does, you have the possibility of hiring a developer for an application built that allow your cell phone to do exactly what you want, but there are groups of developers that if the idea is great, you can take your project in exchange for the ability to put your name on it and offer service and customization application, which is the way to work in open source. The sky is the limit! As of this writing there are about two Android phones activated per second. Because Android is available on mobile as large, with many new to be launched soon, will not be long before Android phones have a greater market share than any other operating system on any other phone, including iPhone, especially since the Android 2.2 Froyo version is compatible with Adobe Flash, a sticking point with the iPhone and other mobile phones. Android 2.2 Froyo is now being extended to the Nexus One, and will soon be available for most Android phones.
