What you knew, what you thought you knew, and what you did not know about Android technology may surprise you. The advancements that are being made with mobile technologies are impressive, but Android Internet technology makes it even more impressive. It provides an open source platform for developers to explore the possibilities of mobile development. There are of course other mobile platforms, such as Apple’s iOS6, but they do not offer the open platform that Android offers.
Benefits of Android Technology as an Open Source Platform
What It Is Being Used For
Android as an open source platform gives developers the means to develop programs and technology that they want. There are no limitations to the capabilities of Android technology. It is being used from anything to artificial intelligence to scientific tools. Many devices have the capability to make things like radiation-meters, and other scientific measuring devices.
Many things can be done with the technology that many mobile devices already have installed in their hardware, but many OS’s limit developers’ access to the code and exploring the true capability of these devices. Android is not as such, and there are current programs that are exploring the capabilities with Android and robotics. The new generation of robots can be used via an Internet connection and Wi-Fi, to control all sorts of robotics.
The use of Android technology with robotics is not a new thing, and you may even have home automation that is controlled via your mobile device. This is a perfect example of how mobile devices and Android are using the Internet and robotics, to make advancements in our technological world.

While Android provides an open source platform for developers to explore their capabilities, it also causes a risk for the corruption of giant mobile networks. This is something that is being studied with a virtual city of three-hundred-thousand android phones by Sandia National Laboratories. It is a simulation that uses a rack of five-hundred computers to simulate the effects of a small army of smartphones and how they interact with each other.
The use of a giant smartphone network does not only have to be for the evil-doers of the world. It can also provide many advantages. It can help to stop the censorship of the Internet in areas of the world where open Internet is something to dream of. There are disadvantages, but with these disadvantages come advancements in technology and the Internet and much is made possible by open source platforms such as Android.
The relationship between the Internet and Android will grow and so will the number of users on mobile networks, which can bring both advantages and disadvantages. It is sure that the advantages will prevail, and open source platforms like Android will help to promote creativity. These developments will help us to accomplish everyday tasks and manage our world through the Internet like never before.
