Android answers call for free smartphone software

,----[ Quote ]
| Google decided to create a better operating system for mobile phones, just as
| Microsoftâs Windows helps a user to operate a PC. Unlike Windows, however,
| Googleâs software for mobiles, called Android, would be free and âopen
| sourceâ.
| The open source concept has been used in other technological advances ranging
| from web browsers, such as Mozillaâs Firefox, to operating systems, such as
| Linux. It means that programmers and developers can have access to the code
| behind the software, essentially its DNA.

| announced that its distribution had been optimized for the Cortex-A8-based
| OMAP3 SoCs.
