Android was established in Palo Alto, California, United States on October, 2003 by Four Guys Namely  Andy Rubin ,Rich Miner , Nick Sears , and Chris White. Later On Android   was acquired by Google in 2005, which made Android wholly owned subsidiary of Google Inc.

So this was a little history of Android , but still question remains in mind, why it is much widely used while we are having  iOS , Windows, Symbian.

These are the possible reasons for it  :

-  It’ s FREE:

- Customization-Friendly:
Google gave freedom to the users that they could modify Android as per their needs.hence  due such good will of company Users enjoy flexibility and ease of use.

- Large number of Apps available:
