Android offers a unified approach to application development for mobile devices which means developers need only develop for Android, and their applications should be able to run on different devices powered by Android.


The first beta version of the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) was released by Google in 2007 where as the first commercial version, Android 1.0, was released in September 2008.


The Android OS consists of numerous Java applications and Java core libraries running under the Java-based object oriented application framework and the dalvik virtual machine in android. Dalvik is integral for the Android to run in mobile devices as these systems are constrained in terms of processor speed and memory.
