Android for Non-geeks

| If you're anything like me then all this 
| talk about Android development, source 
| code, root, version, etc., is all 
| completely over your head. If you don't 
| know who Cyanogen is, it's okay. Well, for 
| now. So, what's the real deal about Android 
| phones? So far, only the geekiest have 
| them, right? I mean, who else is going to 
| sit at a computer all day fiddling with 
| source code to come up with some new 
| doohickey thingamabob that changes a single 
| light on a phone? Well, my husband, the 
| biggest geek I've ever met, and thousands 
| more.

| Androidâs co-founders Andy Rubin, Nick
| Sears, and Chris White went to work for
| Google. Rubin is also the co-founder of
| Danger, Sears is a former Vice President of
| Product Marketing at T-Mobile USA, and
| White headed design and interface
| development at WebTV. Android Inc was an
| unknown company that made software for
| mobile phones. Then rumors were circulating
| that Google was planning to enter the
| mobile phone market. At Google, a team lead
| by Rubin developed a mobile platform
| powered by the Linux kernel which they
| marketed to headset makers and wireless
| carriers on the premise of providing a
| customizable and upgradeable system.
