Windows Mobile, Apple’s iPhone… and now Google’s Android OS. Some exciting years are ahead in the mobile phone market as Microsoft’s hand will be forced by the Open Handset Alliance.
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 is built to be truly open. For example, an
application could 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.
Android is built on the open Linux Kernel.
