One thing I have always learn from Google is its dedication to its business, another very important thin is that it always take advantage of every opportunities that comes its way. Google started with the search engine business and grew it to a multi-billion dollar business empire.
Recently, I read about Google acquiring the patent of Motorola, trust Google, it always got plans. It purchased Android inc, see what it has become today, actually, that is not where we are heading.
One thin that will fascinate you about this write up are the names Google were given its versions of Android, you will feel like ending up at the cafe.
The Android Opreating System started with the release of Android beta, that was November 2007. Google went commercial with Android 1.0 in September 2008.
Before we go further, the history of Android is available here.
Starting from April 2009, the Android operating system has been released with a nickname, and this is in alphabetical order: Cupcake (v1.5), Donut (v1.6), Éclair (v2.0/2.1), Froyo (frozen yogurt) (v2.2.x), Gingerbread (v2.3.x), Honeycomb (v3.x), Ice Cream Sandwich (v4.0), and Jelly Bean (v4.1). The first two release were named Astro and Bender, i. e the Android 1.0 and 1.1, but this names could not go commercial for trademark reasons.
The most recent Android OS is the v4.1, that is the almighty ‘Jelly Bean’ that was announced in June 2012, and now released on 9th July 2012 into the Android Open Source Project. If you want to have a feel of the Jelly Bean, go pre-order the Google first owned mini tablet, the Nexus 7.
