What are Android Computers?

Android inc. developed a Linux based operating system and that Google acquired in 2005 to help them enter the mobile area of telecommunications. Different than Apple’s proprietary exclusive similar versions, Android operating systems remain open source. This had made it an attractive starting point for manufacturers and developers leading to great innovations. The manufacturers can quickly develop high quality devices, skipping time and money trying to reinvent and research what has already been conceived. They can focus on improvements.


Apps are developed by a large community of developers. They create new apps for use on Android computer devices. The applications are made available for a fee and many are free. At the moment there are about 50,000 applications developed, a number that is cvlosing in fast on what’s available in Appleā€™s app store.
