In English dictionary Android was used since 19 century but after 20 century its use was increased dramatically. Nowadays it is the most popular operating system in mobile phones.

We may think that android operating system was initiated by Google but it’s not true. Andy Rubin, Mich Miner, Nick sears and Chris white had established android co-operation in 2003A.D.
