5.) Android is an adopted baby


Android Incorporated is the think tank and not Google. Andy Rubin, the founder of Android from 2003, offered back then a new breed of mobile platform to users.?

2.) Android was a game character

Check out the 1990s console game ?Gauntlet: The Third Encounter?, then you will encounter a game character that has antennae, dotted eyes and it is bullet-shaped with a strip that cuts across the midsection of its robot body. No idea whether Google stole it and gave credits to Atari (game creator) or whoever. The thing is it is really similar.
