It didn’t seem that long ago when the first mobile phone was introduced to the public, and that feeling of awe and amazement at this new technology. It wasn’t long before everyone started owning mobile phones and companies begun to build more and more advanced and impressive models and systems. Now, no one can keep track of the different models being introduced every day. That new device you recently bought would have at least one week before it will become outdated by a new model soon. However, everyone has been falling in love with this superior technology called Android.
Though a lot of people identify Android with smart phones, which is a common misunderstanding. Android is an operating system that has become the world’s best-selling and extremely popular smart phone platform. But it doesn’t work solely for mobile phones only. Think of it as a small office, or a small entertainment venue, a school, a playground made to fit in your very pocket! And the best thing about Android is that it is open source, which means that it is absolutely free. The open source community has been working day and night to give us cool and amazing stuff! Android applications are being developed, improved and upgraded every day.
Android applications have been taking the world on fire. Because of the open source nature of the Android OS, all kinds of applications have been made available for everyone. You can do everything from checking the game updates of your favourite sport, to streaming live your favourite television shows, and to listening to the new singles of your favourite band. You can check the weather and see if your scheduled vacation with your family would be sunny or a bit rainy. Search for just about anything under the sun with just a simple tap. Everything is literally at your finger’s reach. Re-connect with long lost friends through popular social networking sites. Post pictures and share your thoughts, blog and create reviews all through Android. And the fun doesn’t stop there, for everyone’s favourite is also one of Android’s much-loved things to tweak. Widgets are also a common choice for tech-savvy people. You could put different widgets on your desktop for free. You would be amazed at how much you can do with Android that you wouldn’t be able to imagine the world without it.
Another great thing about Android applications is that when you’re having trouble with it, a huge support community would be there to help you out free of charge. Talk to hundreds of people dedicated to answer your questions no matter how complicated they are.
Because of the easy accessibility of Android, the market is coming up every day with different mobile phones that are cheap and affordable. It wouldn’t be long before everyone is given the chance to have a bit of Android in their world.
