More than 1 billion of activated Android devices and over 1.5 million of daily activations. Android, a comprehensive open source platform, offers operating system, user interface and applications for mobile devices such as mobile phones or tablets. The whole platform is designed to run on diverse hardware, taking into account the limitations of mobile devices, such as the need for frequent power supply or lower performance that may nowadays be compared with high-performance PCs and notebooks.

There are available almost 1,000,000 applications, either free or paid. The last mentioned can be purchased only in selected countries, list of which is constantly being expanded by Google. You can also manage your mobile devices through your computer by relatively well documented procedures. Some interventions, such as the so-called “root” are, however, not in compliance with the warranty terms and conditions.
Due to a dynamic development of the Android platform new versions of the system are often released. Tablets also use Android platform and so new versions of applications are created, mainly intended for mobile devices with large 7/10″ inch display. Thanks to that the custom mobile apps development has recently become widely used, especially because of cost savings if there is no need for a company to hire additional employees.

The platform is built on a Linux system, but its applications can be programmed in different ways.
