Android Celebrates its 7th Birthday Today – Powers 85 of Every 100 Phones
Android's birthday is popularly celebrated on November 5 despite all the controversies around the actual / final date of this popular operating system. HTC's T-Mobile G1 aka HTC Dream was the first device to take the honors of being adorned by this mobile OS some 10 months later. Some say the first terms coined for the OS were Astro Boy, R2 D2 and other such names. However, Android has remained confectionery-addicted ever since its birth throughout its childhood and now even in its adult life. With Lollipop being the latest addition under the hat of this operating, the history is growing strong with every year's passing.

phones sold in the third quarter of 2014, but a beautifully crafted infographic can do the honors. There is a long road for Android ahead and a confectionery-infected mobile operating system deserves some wishes for a sweeter way ahead. Happy Birthday, Android!
