Google Android - the new mobile Operating system (OS)BY: informationishere | Category: Technology and Computers | Post Date: 2008-09-26
Android is an Open Handset Alliance Project, a group of more than 30 technology and mobile companies. It is the first open source and free mobile operating system. Google released the SDK for Android and also held a developers challenge competition. Few special features of android are:
1. Apps without borders
Apps on Android can access core mobile device functionality through standard APIs. Through intents, apps can announce their capabilities for other apps to use.
2. Apps are created equal
Any app on the mobile device can be replaced or extended -- even core components such as the dialer or home.
3. Apps can easily embed the web
Apps can easily embed HTML, java script, and style sheets. An app can render web content through a WebView.
4. Apps can run in parallel
Android is a complete multitasking environment where apps can run in parallel. While running in the background, an app can produce notifications to get attention.
Android ran quickly and efficiently on the G1's 400 Mhz Qualcomm processor. Unlike with the iPhone, there seem to be several ways to accomplish any task. You can scroll through Web pages with your finger or with the trackball. To search contacts, you can swipe with your finger or start typing on the keyboard. To dial the phone, you can tap the Dialer icon or the physical Phone button.
Various tutorial of the Android SDK are available on the net for developers. With the advance in open source technology, it is expected that the customers will experience a new range of applications that suit their requirements and are thoroughly customizable.
