What is Android?

Android is a 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 on 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. Android was listed as the best-selling Smartphone platform world-wide in Q4 2010 by Canalys. Android has a large community of developers writing applications ("apps") that extend the functionality of the devices. There are currently more than 19,00,000 apps available for Android in Dec 2015. 

Android Market is the online app store run by Google, though apps can also be downloaded from third-party sites. Developers write primarily in the Java programming language, controlling the device via Google-developed Java libraries.

Android Market

Android Market is the online software store developed by Google for Android devices.

As of December 2015 there were about 19,00,000 games, applications and widgets available on the Android Market.
