It’s a platform that’s open source for developers of software and hardware.

(I Googled Andriod to get the following link):

yeah from my understanding, it is to phones what linux is to computers. its just software that you put on the phone.

It’s the OS, operational system, in a mobile phone. Like what Kyle said, the software that makes your computer/phone work. The first versions of Android phones hasn’t been very impressive, but since Google is known to succeed with everything, they probably will with Android aswell.

Haha, the only things Google has succeeded at are Internet search and Internet advertising. Basically everything else they’ve tried has flopped (w/ gmail as a possible exception [which makes no money].

Basically, the G1 and other Abdroid phones are delivering the functionality the iPhone delivered 2 years ago with a crappier interface, far less integration with your computer, and an increased likelyhood for viruses and malware. It’s the Windows of phones.
