Infographic: The History of Android

Print comment Post Comments
To crib what half-friends wrote me in my senior class yearbook: What a long, strange trip it's been!

Originally maligned as iPhone also-rans, Android and its mountain of devices have become a force to be reckoned with, pushing the smartphone battle into a two-horse race. The platform has built a rabidly loyal fanbase -- rivaling that of the iPhone -- and has introduced some incredible features into the mobile landscape.

It's been six years since Google acquired the Android group and the platform's only getting better. And to give a little history on the OS, xCube Labs created an infographic featuring a timeline of its explosive growth.

Thanks to Arun Kothapally for providing the image!
