Android is an open-source operating system OS which is used in smartphones and tablets.

It uses a gesture-based interface designed for touch screens.

There are a wide range of applications developed for the Android OS, which can be downloaded from Google's official Play Store.

Unlike iOS, Android has a range of third-party app stores such as Slide ME and F-Droid.

Since Android is used in devices by far more vendors than iOS or Windows Phone, the prices of Android devices vary hugely.

The company was first founded in Palo Alto in October 2003 by Andy Rubin of Danger, Rich Miner of WildFire and Nick Sears of T-Mobile.
