Hello friends, Do you know the actual and full story of Mr. Android, if don’t then here it is an infographic below by Xcubelabs. Here is Android Infographic.
Android, Inc. was founded in Palo Alto, California in October 2003 by Andy Rubin , Rich Miner , Nick Sears , and Chris White to develop, in Rubin’s words “smarter mobile devices that are more aware of its owner’s location and preferences”. The early intentions of the company were to develop an advanced operating system for digital cameras, when it was released that the market for the devices was not large enough, and diverted their efforts to producing a smartphone operating system to rival those of Symbian and Windows Mobile (Apple’s iPhone had not been released at the time).
Google acquired Android Inc. on August 17, 2005, making it a wholly owned subsidiary of Google. Key employees of Android Inc., including Rubin, Miner and White, stayed at the company after the acquisition. Not much was known about Android Inc. at the time, but many assumed that Google was planning to enter the mobile phone market with this move. And the story is continued in the infographic below.
