With Android Google has created the internationally most widely used mobile operating system. In July this year, there were over 1 billion Android users. Google’s assessment and striving for it is only the beginning. With a new initiative called Android One, which was unveiled at the Google I / O last June, it wants to enable the company on this earth in the medium term a lot more people (the next 5 billion!) To own a smartphone, and this without having to make too many compromises here. Yesterday, Google announced together with the manufacturers Micromax, Karbonn and Spice the availability of the first three Android smartphones-one in the Indian market.
The Android-One project Google has specially devised for the countries where the monthly income often does not extend beyond the 250-dollar mark. For the majority of people in these regions, it was previously simply impossible to acquire a reasonably current according to our standards, properly equipped and comfortable-to-use smartphone. Now that changes. Consumers for around $ 105 received in India (also have sales launch planned in countries like Indonesia and the Philippines) is an Android-One with 4.5-inch display, a quad-core SoC from MediaTek, which expects 1.3 GHz clock speed, 1GB RAM, 4GB of flash memory, a microSD card slot and dual SIM slot and FM radio. In addition, the smartphones lies a 1,700 mAh battery and the back is a 5 megapixel on the front is a 2 megapixel camera. In view of that the price is really not bad.
Another plus for Google and probably even the most important feature of Android smartphones-one represents the software. Devices on all the currently latest version of Android (Android 4.4 KitKat) runs in its original form, without any vendor-specific customizations. In addition, Google itself is responsible for updates and already shows the distribution of the upcoming Android L in view. Basically, the 100-dollar smartphones are nothing more than the best available Nexus models, with the help of Google apparently decided want to tackle the still problematic degree of fragmentation of the Android ecosystem.
