I’m starting with Android, I only own an Android device for one month now, and because some weeks ago I asked to the facebook fans, some ideas to write about, they suggested me to start posting about Android.
Well, Android is based on Linux so I think is not off topic for this blog.
For those also new to Android, let me copy the definition of it from Wikipedia:
Android is an open-source software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. Google Inc. purchased the initial developer of the software, Android Inc., in 2005. Android’s mobile operating system is based upon a modified version of the Linux kernel. Google and other members of the Open Handset Alliance collaborated on Android’s development and release. The Android Open Source Project (AOSP) is tasked with the maintenance and further development of Android.
Last December the latest version of Android for cell phones Gingerbread, was released, but there is also a newer version, Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) which is optimized for tablets.
You can see it in action in this video:

Well, I think that is for this first video, I’ll be posting some more articles in the future, but as I’m new to it, do not expect too much in the near future, at least until I learn more about Android.
If you think you can contribute with some tips about Android, let me know, I can publish your posts.
