Android was announced 10 years ago today.

On November 5, 2007, the Open Handset Alliance was established. The new group led by Google, also announced their flagship product, Android.

On November 5, 2007, the Open Handset Alliance, a consortium of technology companies including Google, device manufacturers such as HTC, Motorolaand Samsung, wireless carriers such as Sprint and T-Mobile, and chipset makers such as Qualcomm and Texas Instruments, unveiled itself, with a goal to develop "the first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices". The first commercially available smartphone running Android was the HTC Dream, also known as T-Mobile G1, announced on September 23, 2008.

Android has many birthdays or anniversaries. Some say it's the day that the Android SDK was dropped. Some say it was the day the first commercially available phone was announced. Others prefer the day that phone, the HTC G1/Dream went on sale. This is just one of them.

It's been a wild ride over the past 10 years.

Really awesome stuff continues to come from Microsoft.

The comments are very interesting too, especially comparing to Google's internal tools, which are godlike, apparently. 


With GVFS, this means that they now have a Git experience that is much more manageable: clone now takes a few minutes instead of 12+ hours, checkout takes 30 seconds instead of 2-3 hours, and status takes 4-5 seconds instead of 10 minutes. And we’re working on making those numbers even better.

Ever wanted to download adb or fastboot without having to download the whole of Android Studio?

...but didn't want to download executables from some random warez site?

Good news this week:

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-darwin.zip

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-linux.zip

https://dl.google.com/android/repository/platform-tools-latest-windows.zip

These links will always return the adb/fastboot binaries currently shipping with Android Studio. No need to guess what the current version is, or update your own links: just follow these and get the latest binaries, direct from the source.

This is thanks to +Siva Velusamy and Kevin Quinn, not me.
