CLOSURE LOOK AT ANDROID

                Hi friends after successfull post on fb osWrld is now going to post on android which is famuler in running time.as we all are know few months ago all people werw using symbian os in mobile but right now all most all people are using android os.

Today android is the word which is on top in search everywhere. Earlier when I heard about android mobiles, I just asked that what is android. Then i search for it and I came to know that it is operating system for mobiles just like windows in computer or laptops. So Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. android-logo
The Android SDK provides the tools and APIs necessary to begin developing applications on the Android platform using the Java programming language. So we can say this is the first truly opened comprehensive platform for mobile devices, all of the software to run a mobile phone but without the proprietary obstacles that have hindered mobile innovation.

In simple language I have told you that android is an operating system for mobiles but actually at all this is software that includes operating system. Android is an open source for development like Linux. By this Android offers developers the ability to build extremely rich and innovative applications. It is developed by the Open Handset Alliance led by Google. Developers are free to take advantage of the device hardware, access location information, run background services, set alarms, add notifications to the status bar, and much, much more.
Google releases the Android code as open-source, under the Apache License.Due to open source now it has a number of applications. Apps can be downloaded from third-party sites or through online stores such as Android Market, the app store run by Google. As of February 2012 there were more than 450,000 apps available for Android. According to Google’s Andy Rubin, as of February 2012 there are over 850,000 Android devices activated every day.
Initially it was released on 20 September 2008.And from that time Google has been released near about eight version of android platform as below:250px-Android_4.0
  • Android 2.1 Platform.
  • Android 2.2 Platform.
  • Android 2.3.3 Platform.
  • Android 2.3.4 Platform.
  • Android 3.0 Platform.
  • Android 3.1 Platform.
  • Android 3.2 Platform.
  • Android 4.0.x Platform.

Android has been programmed in C(core),JAVA and C++.Its latest stable release is  4.0.4(Ice Cream Sandwich) on 31st January 2012.Android uses Monolithic type of kernel which is of Linux. But like Linux it is not prompt base, instead of it like windows by default it is Graphical User Interface (GUI).
