Android? What Is This You Speak Of?

Dec 11, 2010 by

Android Logo! Yes, Android reviews for phones will be coming soon so keep you’re eyes peeled!

Yes! Android! We all knew it, even the Co-Founder of Apple, Steve Wozniak thinks it’s going to become a problem for Apple and we will all love it for that one reason!

The Apple phone has very few weaknesses. True complaints and problems are not. When it comes to quality, iPhone is leading. Apple has the direction for the entire world. Android phones have more features.

If you didn’t know heres a few differences between iOS and Android that makes it unique;

  • Android is more open to third party applications and ‘jailbreaking’ but with Android, it’s called ‘rooting.’
  • In Android there’s the App Market where no apps have to be checked over by Google before they are released under ridiculous rules like Apple has.
  • Android uses well known JavaScript and XML to make apps, easy to develop.
  • Android phones aren’t just on one device that costs $300+, my android phone was €119 and it’s lighting fast and does its job perfectly!
  • Linux is the operating system of choice for a lot of highly technical computer geeks and especially in regards to security as it has a better core for security purposes. It is also a highly malleable operating system that is free to use so many technologies base their systems on it. In this case the Android operating system is based around the Linux kernel. This in turn will attract more developers.
  • Android!

    Good? Well here’s some cool, good to know facts about Android itself!

  • The Android operating system consists of 12 million lines of code including 3 million lines of XML, 2.8 million lines of C, 2.1 million lines of Java, and 1.75 million lines of C++
  • The updates for Android are named after Pastries
  • Obviously there’s more then that, but this is just a taster of what will be posted on How’s My App to come in later articles.
