So how’s that! The Google phone is not a phone to be more precise, the company has just made public that they were busy developing their ‘Android’, a mobile open-source Linux-based operating system to be accessible on a range of smartphones. HTC, Motorola, T-Mobile, and Qualcomm are participating in this Android project; they all constitute the “Open Handset Alliance,” or OHA, a group of mobile hardware and software manufacturers.
See what Android description page contains:
Android does not differentiate between the phone’s core applications and third-party applications. They can all be built to have equal access to a phone’s capabilities providing users with a broad spectrum of applications and services. With devices built on the Android Platform, users will be able to fully tailor the phone to their interests.
With this hottest Google offering one can swap out the phone’s homescreen, the style of the dialer, or any of the applications. They can even instruct their phones to use their favorite photo viewing application to handle the viewing of all photos. Android runs on to the software patterns of Red Hat Linux or Apple’s hottest operating system X.
