  89. 89. The Evolution of Android as a platform for developing applications for future devices, that are obliviously going to be hand held devices, has been very promising.<br /> If the industry players keep valuing the many virtues of Android like freedom to change it and its zero cost, Android does have a very bright future.<br />The reason for choosing Android as the platform to develop my project is the belief that Android is going to be a big thing in the future since it is remarkably bringing the sales of iPhone down.<br />The experience of developing an application for a totally fresh platform is very pleasing and there are end less opportunities to be explored.<br /> Thank You.<br /> -AmanAlam<br /><br />
