Android Operating System celebrates its 10th birthday today

Android Operating system

The mobile world is commending a pivotal commemoration today: Android Operating System is ten years of age. The T-Mobile G1 (and Android 1.0) made its debut on September 23rd, 2008, propelling both another working framework. It didn’t look like much in those early days, however, it, in the end, turned into the predominant mobile stage and set the pattern for what numerous individuals expect in a cell phone.

On its debut, it was especially harsh around the edges. Naturally, it couldn’t play video outside of YouTube. Android Market, the antecedent to Google Play, had only a bunch of applications. There wasn’t even a virtual keyboard. Andy Rubin and team at first outlined the Android operating system as a BlackBerry-like affair, before Apple’s iPhone made touchscreens extremely popular, and that keyboard center endured long after the G1 arrived.
Be that as it may, the essential recipe was at that point there. Google expected the operating system as an open, web-driven OS that would convey its services to your pocket.
However, Google figured out how to seize on that potential. Android adoption detonated on account of both fast programming redesigns and leads like the Motorola Droid and Samsung Galaxy S. It was at that point the most prevalent versatile OS before the end of 2010, and contenders that once appeared to be unassailable rapidly fell by the wayside.
In the event that the iPhone thumped BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Mobile off their individual roosts, it was Android that placed them in the ground.
Today, Android is the accepted programming on for all intents and purposes each cell phone that doesn’t originate from Apple, and it was available on in excess of 2 billion mobile gadgets starting in 2017. All the more vitally, it has extended well past telephones in the previous decade.
You can discover the OS on a bunch of tablets, smart watches, and TVs, also bizarre spots like stoves and VR headsets. It’s even present on PCs – because of Chrome OS, you can run Android applications on your laptop.
