Android is a Linux-based operating system for mobile platforms developed and maintained principally by Google. It now powers a number of smartphones currently in the market including Google’s own Nexus One, and several handsets from Motorola, Acer and other members of the Open Handset Alliance. The platform was announced to much fanfare in late 2007. Here’s a video introducing the latest version of the platform.
