One of the main advantages of Android mobile phones is that they are so adaptable. A wide range of mobile and smartphones using this OS have been developed. They are very handy for social networking, for saving calendar reminders, for accessing news and a whole host of other services, including an installed camera.
A major development for people who own an Android smartphone is the arrival of Facebook Home. Meanwhile, the Facebook Messenger app is available for users to update and install.
Mobile phones using the Android OS can also be linked to a computer and they are able to back up contacts.
Owners of an Android mobile will find that there is a whole host of apps available, either pre-installed or which can be downloaded. There are both free and paid versions available. Apps, as well as games can be easily downloaded from Google Play Store’s extensive selection. Users also receive messages and are directed to the relevant Play Store page when updates are available.
Many versions of Android have been introduced since the launch of its first commercial version, Android 1.0, back in September 2008. Since then the Android OS has not only been used on mobile and smartphones, but also tablets and even netbooks. One of the more recent versions is Android Jelly Bean 4.2.
This demonstrates that Android is being constantly improved and updated to ensure that mobile phone owners running the platform continue to have the best experience possible with their devices.
