  • These are the features that Google’s Android Operating system brings to the phone market and more importantly the HTC phone:first: Open Source! Open Source is huge. This allows users to create applications for Android as well as make Andriod into the operating system that they want. Another good this about open source operating systems is that its free to everyone. Therefore, applications can be made by people who don’t even have the phone.Second: quick integration with other google applications such as google maps for use with the GPSA quick example of this would be having the ability to attach an address to a name. So when you call someone, you can then quickly open google maps to determine where the person lives and the quickly move to street view to determine what that looks like
  • Handset layouts The platform is adaptable to larger, VGA, 2D graphics library, 3D graphics library based on OpenGL ES 1.0 specifications, and traditional smartphone layouts. Storage The Database SoftwareSQLite is used for data storage purposes Connectivity Android supports connectivity technologies including GSM/EDGE, CDMA, EV-DO, UMTS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. MessagingSMS and MMS are available forms of messaging including threaded text messaging. Web browser The web browser available in Android is based on the open-source WebKitapplication framework. Java support Software written in Java can be compiled to be executed in the Dalvik virtual machine, which is a specialized VM implementation designed for mobile device use, although not technically a standard Java Virtual Machine. Media support Android supports the following audio/video/still media formats: H.263, H.264 (in 3GP or MP4container), MPEG-4 SP, AMR, AMR-WB (in 3GP container), AAC, HE-AAC (in MP4 or 3GP container), MP3, MIDI, OGG Vorbis, WAV, JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP.[26]Additional hardware support Android can utilize video/still cameras, touchscreens, GPS, accelerometers, magnetometers, accelerated 2D bitblits (with hardware orientation,scaling,pixel format conversion) and accelerated 3D graphics. Development environment Includes a device emulator, tools for debugging, memory and performance profiling, a plugin for the Eclipse IDE. Market Like many phone-based application stores, the Android Market is a catalog of applications that can be downloaded and installed to target hardware over-the-air, without the use of a PC. Originally only freeware applications were supported. Paid-for apps have been available on the Android Market in the United States since 19 February 2009.[27] The Android Market has been expanding rapidly and after a year of availability, it currently offers over 10,000 applications for download.[28]Multi-touch Android has native support for multi-touch which is available in newer handsets such as the HTC Hero. The feature was initially disabled at the kernel level (possibly to avoid infringing Apple patents on touch-screen technology[29]).
  • The feature list of Google’s Android is always expanding. Google is committed to the platform and is releasing constant updates that continually expands on what it can do as well as increase access speeds and change User Interfaces. But Google isn’t the only company doing this. Features are always being added by the google programming community. On a daily basis new applications are being added that add new features, increase productivity or even entertain. Android is always evolving and growing.
