Happy Birthday, Google Android!
The Google Android operating system celebrates it's 4th birthday this month. In September 2008, version 1.0 was publicly released, although the history goes back considerably further. In 2003 the Android company was started in Palo Alta, CA, and Google purchased them in 2005. Android is a Linux-based operating system geared primarily to mobile, touch screen devices and is developed by Google and the Open Handset Alliance.
