Android is an operating system for mobile devices owned and developed by Google. It is currently one of the most popular operating systems on both smartphones and tablets, making it the most popular mobile operating system overall.

Versions of AndroidEdit

Since it's beginning, Android has gone through a number of version updates. With the exception of the first couple versions, each version is named after a different food, and is also given it's own number. For example, the newest version is Android 5.0 Lollipop.

List of VersionsEdit

Google PlayEdit

Google Play has become the "ecosystem" for Android, which in many ways, makes Android primarily centered around the service. Most Google Play apps are installed on Android by default, including Play Music, Play Books, Play Movies & TV, and Play Store. Google's gaming service, entitled Play Games, is also available for download through the Play Store.

Lawsuits Edit

Several lawsuits have been filed against Google by Apple, Microsoft, Oracle and other companies via patents to limit and hurt Android-based software and hardware. However, very few, if any of the ones aimed directly at the Android operating system have been successful.

Hardware VariationsEdit

Android runs on a number of different types of mobile devices. It is most commonly found on smartphones and tablets. Other projects (some from Google itself) are planned to run on Android as well. Most personal computers can also run Android, with an almost full set of Android features and hardware support as a regular Linux install.
