Android tricks and information



  In this tutorial i am going to teach u about all the important tricks and update of the android   mobile..

               Different versions of android mobile is given below for ur information..

          There was previously two flavors of the platform. One  mainly targeted for small screens mainly mobile phones (all versions below 3.0), and one dedicated for tablets: Honeycomb Android 3.0. However not all Android tablets support this version (some tablets use the Android 2.x).

          These two variants of the platform have been merged to a versatile and uniform platform since "Ice Cream Sandwich", which has been released in October 2011. It combines "Gingerbread" and "Honeycomb" versions in a cohesive platform for tablets and phones at the same time.

          The latest version of the platform is now Jelly Bean Android 4.2.2. It focuses on speed and graphics smoothness while enabling new applications like Google Beam, Google Now and a better camera app.

*Android platform

Android is a software stack that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. While Google is the main actor which comes to mind, the Open Handset Alliance also collaborates on Android's development and release. The operating system is based on the Linux kernel, the specific versions depends on the platform version.
