These all gadgets were well-equipped with different new and attractive features and functions.

One of such electronic gadgets which ruled over the hearts of the people of the whole world is Apple Inc., U.S.A.’s I-Phone. The main factor that made I-Phone that much famous and popular as well as liked was its new, useful and innovative features. After that, another factor that made I-Phone that much liked was its sleek, elegant and unique kind of look. But, the important thing that made I-Phone well-known all over the world is its operating system. Its operating system was unique and efficient that other operating systems of mobile phones. This gave rise to a competition in the software and operating systems of mobile phones.


Nowadays, there is given less priority to hardware rather than software. Today, there is a huge and tight competition between mobile phones in terms of their operating systems (OS). The main factor that dismissed I-Phone from its throne and brought out a new phone, Samsung Galaxy S3 as its new king is the Android Operating System that is used in Samsung Galaxy S3.

Google, which has named every upgraded version of its Android Operating System in android botterms of food, has now named Android 4.2 operating system as Jelly Bean. With the new and sweet names of its operating systems, Google has even worked hard to provide more new and exciting features and functions in its Android Operating Systems. Google’s operating systems’ names and their features are attracting the people very much.

While talking about the history of Google’s Android Operating System, we can find that its history is not very much long. But it has released many versions of its operating system. The Android Operating System version 1.0 and 1.1 weren’t publicly given any kind of names. But the versions that were released after them were given special names which were based on the names of sweet and tasty foods. Since the release of Google’s Android Operating System version 1.5, Google started a trend to give names based on the foods in an alphabetical order. Google named Android Operating System version 1.5 as ‘Cupcake’. Likewise, it named its next operating system version 1.6 as ‘Donut’. After ‘Donut’, a new version was released which was named Éclair. This Android Operating System was released in different versions like 2.0, 2.0.1 and 2.1. After that, Frozen Yogurt (Froyo) was released which contained versions like 2.2 and 2.2X. Then, again a new Android version named Gingerbread was released which was Android version 2.3 and 2.3X.

Similarly, in the Honeycomb version there were version 3.0, 3.0 X, 3.1 and 3.2. Likewise, the most widely used version is Ice Cream Sandwich version which is version 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.0.3 and 4.0.4. This is the Android version used in most of the smartphones of today including famous smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Note.

Likewise, Jelly Bean is the latest version of android which is also called Android version 4.1 and 4.2. This is not that much famous like Ice Cream Sandwich because very less smartphones have this operating system in them. Nexus 7 tablet was the first gadget to have this operating system installed in it.
