Android is a mobile operating system running on the Linux kernel. Android was initially developed by Google and later the Open Handset Alliance. In July 2005, Google acquired Android, Inc., a small startup company based in Palo Alto, California, USA. Among Android’s co-founders who went to work at Google was Andy Rubin (co-founder of Danger — the maker of the SideKick phone available from T-Mobile).

On December 9, 2008, new members consortium members were announced: ARM Holdings Plc, Atheros Communications, Asustek Computer Inc, Garmin Ltd, Softbank, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba Corp, and Vodafone Group Plc.
