Google Android

 

Android phones, most notably from smartphone giant HTC, have been making an appearance in our stores lately.

These phones, which run on an open-source flavour of the Linux operating system customised for mobile phones by Google, promise a more powerful and stable operating system for smartphones.

However, while the operating system holds a lot of promise, current devices are of limited use largely because the Google Android Marketplace, the applications store for the operating system, is not yet officially available here.

This makes installing applications via legal means a little difficult for the average user.

Nevertheless, Android-based devices (such as the HTC Magic) have many of the features that rival Apple's popular iPhone. This includes a nearly full-featured web browser, a relatively stable operating system and, with the newer devices, a multi-touch capable screen that recognises the famous "pinch-in, pinch-out" gestures for zooming in and out of images.

Apart from HTC, some other companies are also getting in on the Android action, most notably Motorola, which is due to release an Android-based smartphone soon.

Right now, though, users interested in getting an Android phone should wait till the licensing issues for the Google Android Marketplace have been resolved and a localised version of the store finally opens here.
