THE BEGINNING Android was founded as a start up company in 2003 by four men. Andy Rubin was the man in charge. Little was known about Android at the time. Even the company was not exactly sure what the goal was. 3
THE PURCHASE THAT MADE IT HAPPEN Two long years after the founding of Android, the company was struggling to stay alive. in late 2005, Android was purchased by corporate giant Google 4. The purchase allowed Android to explode with funding and development. Without this purchase, Android could have failed. 5
THE JUMPSTART After the release of the iPhone in 2007, it was time for Android to step in. In return, Google formed the Open Handset Alliance with multiple large corporations 7. The Open Handset Alliance allowed these companies such as Samsung, HTC, and Motorola to incorporate their own custom software onto the device. 6
THE FIRST ANDROID DEVICE In late 2008, Google released the first Android device. The device was the HTC Dream G1 8. Features: Sold in black and white 2G/3G Network support QWERTY Keyboard TFT Touchscreen 180ppi (pixels per inch) microSD card compatible 3.15MP rear camera with video recording Android 1.0 – upgradable to 1.6 Qualcomm single core processor
