Before you guys pounce on me by saying "how could that be?, it was first released in Sept 23, 2008", I hasten to add that the birth-date I refer to is the one when the Open handset Alliance was first announced. The Android operating system was first mentioned there. Here is the original article from 5 years ago ^^ More in the source Link. I remember reading this news article 5 years ago. I knew the moment I read this that within a few years Android will become the dominant OS. Today we customers benefit due to the existence of Android. Competition drives innovation and reduces prices. The customer is a definite winner thanks to Android. Also, Who can dislike the cute green robot....or the cuter Jellybean Mascot Happy Birthday Android!
