Google acquires Android for smartphone applications

Posted on Thursday, August 18 2005 @ 15:08:31 CEST by

Google today acquired a 22-month old startup, called Android. This firm specialised in creating software for mobile phones and at one point it had even been working on a cell phone operating system.
In a 2003 interview with BusinessWeek, just two months before incorporating Android, Rubin said there was tremendous potential in developing smarter mobile devices that are more aware of its owner's location and preferences. "If people are smart, that information starts getting aggregated into consumer products," said Rubin.

Rubin declined to comment on Android or its sale to Google. A spokesperson for the search giant would not elaborate on the deal, only stating: "We acquired Android because of the talented engineers and great technology. We're thrilled to have them here."
