Android is an operating system for mobile devices that includes middleware and key applications, and uses a modified version of the Linux kernel. It was initially developed by Android Inc., a firm later purchased by Google, and lately by the Open Handset Alliance. It allows developers to write managed code in the Java language, controlling the device via Google-developed Java libraries.

The Android operating system software stack consists of Java applications running on a Java based object oriented application framework on top of Java core libraries running on a Dalvik virtual machine featuring JIT compilation. Libraries written in C include the surface manager, OpenCore media framework, SQLite relational database management system, OpenGL ES 2.0 3D graphics API, WebKit layout engine, SGL graphics engine, SSL, and Bionic libc. The Android operating system consists of 12 million lines of code including 3 million lines of XML, 2.8 million lines of C, and 2.1 million lines of Java.
Developer:Open Handset Alliance
Programmed in:C (core), C++, Java (UI)
Source model:FOSS
Initial release:21 October 2008
Supported platforms:ARM, MIPS, Power Architecture, x86
Kernel type:Monolithic (modified Linux kernel)
License:Apache 2.0 and GPLv2

Android Market is an online software store developed by Google for Android devices. An application program ("app") called "Market" is preinstalled on some Android devices and allows users to browse and download apps published by third-party developers, hosted on Android Market. The website, rather than the Market app itself, provides details of some of the available apps, in particular those that are termed "Featured", "Top Paid" and "Top Free".

Last week I began toying with the Android SDK, to see what I could accomplish. The API is well documented, the UI work is simple, and there are tons of tutorials. Hoping to work up a JPH!P related app in the near future. :hump:

Looking forward to that, for sure.

I'm still on the lookout for an android device, since I can't recontract for another 2 months. The Droid looks great, but I might want to wait till the Droid 2 comes along..

What you're looking at in the photo above is a Motorola MB520, aka Kobe and/or Diablo, a midrange Android handset destined for AT&T.  The Kobe allegedly has a 3.5-inch touchscreen with a 480x854 resolution, an 800 MHz TI OMAP processor, PowerVR SGX 530 GPU, 512 MB of RAM, 2 GB of built-in storage, a 2 GB microSD card preinstalled, a 3 megapixel camera with no flash, and Android 2.1 running beneath MOTOBLUR.  Reportedly, an over the air update to Android 2.2 is planned for the Kobe, as well.  There's no word on release or pricing info, so stay tuned for that.

Once you go Android you never go back, or whatever they say. I couldn't be happier, even though I'm on an old hero. Tapatalk, vuvuzela girl and all the other apps along with the customization makes android the perfect phone OS for anyone geek.

Recently got a Samsung Captivate/SGH-i897 Galaxy S. Yeahhhh its awesome. :twothumbs

Was disappointed though when I found out it shipped with 2.1. Damn Samsung and/or AT&T taking forever to release Froyo 2.2 so I went ahead and put in the leaked Froyo last night. So far no problems with the phone. A little bit snappier processing things. The USB tethering and mobile AP is glorious. Actually tethering it now since my ISP is shit and dead currently.

Please share apps/widgets for a new Android user!
