The Rise of Android

Brief history

Android is a free and open source operating system project, developed and maintained by Google. Why is it free and open source? Android actually slightly pre-dates iPhone, but with Blackberry already the dominant smartphone provider in 2007 and iPhone's revolutionary hardware quickly catching up, Google had to take drastic action to get their foot in the door. Google’s strategy was to give Android away so that it would become the dominant mobile operating system. It worked. As time went by, Google figured out more ways to monetize their “free” operating system, primarily through sales made via the Android Market, which later became "Google Play" when Google expanded their offerings to include music, movies, TV shows, books, and magazines. Android has become the mobile operating system of choice for manufacturers looking for low-cost and highly customizable software to run their hardware. These days, now that Android has "won" the smartphone "war", at least in terms of its worldwide install base, Google exercises some stronger control over just how Android is used if OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) want to keep enjoying the benefits of Google Play and other core Google apps like Gmail, Drive, Hangouts, etc. As a result, Android is perhaps less "open source" than it used to be, though its source code still remains open to use and manipulate by anyone.

This is your quick primer on the different versions of Android that are still alive and kicking, from newest to oldest:


  • Android 7.X Nougat (2016)
  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow (late 2015)
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop (late 2014)
  • Android 4.4 KitKat (late 2013)
  • Android 4.1-4.3 Jelly Bean (mid-2012)
