May's NorthEast Wisconsin Linux Users Group (NEWLUG) presentation is a general overview of the Android operating system. The talk discusses some of the different uses for a cellphone running Android OS and the applications available in the Android marketplace. We discuss some of the different hardware platforms that either support the Android OS or are speculated to be released in the future. Beyond the user experience, we cover the architecture of the Android OS and how to develop your own applications for the platform.
