Android


Android is an operating system developed by Google as an open-source project. It has been used primarily for smartphones and tablets, but was also modified in order to be used for TVs, cars, and wrist watches.

Advantages

  • Allows running multiple applications at the same time

  • Supports different types of hardware

  • Uses a mainstream development language - Java

  • Low cost

  • Customizable

  • Good security; applications do not have access to system resources unless they ask the user for those permissions before being installed

Disadvantages

  • The source code needs to be adapted for each device individually, which means that companies that produce smartphones may deliver version updates slowly for older devices, or not at all.
