An Android Revolution?


Hi I’m Torsten Herbst and I’m creating the new Esoko app for Android. I’m writing today to share a little bit about Android itself, and about why Esoko is (and everyone else should be) watching out for this next wave in mobile.

What exactly is Android?
Android is an operating system for smartphones developed by Google. Just like the operating system on your laptop or computer, Android provides the layer between your phone’s hardware and the applications running on it. Android makes all the cool technologies packed into the new generation smartphones available to you. And there are lots of new technologies in these shiny devices: touch screens to allow you to interact with your phone, high resolution cameras to take pictures, GPS to pinpoint your location, mobile internet to stay connected, screens big and fast enough to play movies and multimedia content. Combine this with ample processing power and storage and you can do things on your phone that you haven’t thought of previously, anytime, anywhere.
