Happy birthday, Android! One of the truths of technology is that it is always changing, and one tech area we’ve seen plenty of change in has been the world of smartphones and tablets.  It is eye-opening to look back and try to remember a world before the modern mobile platforms were around.


Android was first unveiled by the Open Handset Alliance on November 5th, 2007.  Less than a year later, the first Android phone, the HTC Dream, was released to the market.  The Android operating system has grown since then with over 500 million devices activated worldwide.


Congratulations, Android on making it to your 5th year.  We look forward to your continued contributions and innovations to the smartphone and tablet market.
