Android



Android is an open operating system and platform that is based on the Linux kernel. In addition, it has a middleware application and other valuable development tools. Developed by Google, Android is designed to work with mobile devices. As a result, developers can use Google-developed Java libraries to write managed code in a Java-like language. However, Android does not work with programs that were developed in native code.Androidâ„¢ delivers a complete set of software for mobile devices: an operating system, middleware and key mobile applications.



Open

Android was built from the ground-up to enable developers to create compelling mobile applications that take full advantage of all a handset has to offer. It was built to be truly open. For example, an application can call upon any of the phone's core functionality such as making calls, sending text messages, or using the camera, allowing developers to create richer and more cohesive experiences for users.

All applications are created equal

Android does not differentiate between the phone's core applications and third-party applications. They can all be built to have equal access to a phone's capabilities providing users with a broad spectrum of applications and services. With devices built on the Android Platform, users are able to fully tailor the phone to their interests.


Breaking down application boundaries

Android breaks down the barriers to building new and innovative applications. For example, a developer can combine information from the web with data on an individual's mobile phone -- such as the user's contacts, calendar, or geographic location -- to provide a more relevant user experience.


Fast & easy application development

Android provides access to a wide range of useful libraries and tools that can be used to build rich applications. For example, Android enables developers to obtain the location of the device, and allows devices to communicate with one another enabling rich peer-to-peer social applications.
