Everything Android does for the world of technology

Android It's not just an operating system for mobile devices, much less, it's more than that. Android does a lot for the world of technology, provides solutions, brings new ideas, provides an interconnected world.

Of course, he is not the only one, but we certainly now see things that were unthinkable a few years ago, and this is thanks to Android. Do you want to see some examples?

Cheap smartphones for everyone

It's hard for a true smartphone lower than ? 300 free price, very very complicated. Just to give you an idea, the typical Nokia Prepaid, for example a 2730, it can cost if we buy almost ? 100 free, but the good thing about Android is that being a multi-brand OS, some manufacturers bet on cheap phones. We've always seen the example of Geeks?Phone in this case, but we go further.

For example, we have the case of Samsung Galaxy Precedent, a prepaid / free Android smartphone that has just come out in the United States, more specifically in the WalMart chain stores. his price is 150 $, that is to say it does not reach ? 105, is crazy for a phone of these characteristics, although obviously it is not the believe me of the believe me, but for that price we have some characteristics Nothing negligible:

  • 800 MHz processor
  • 384 MB of RAM
  • 2MP rear camera
  • Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • 3.2 ? screen with a resolution of 320 × 480

Hopefully something like this will arrive in Europe soon, because this opens up a wide range of people to have a smartphone. We leave you a video for you to see in action:

But if there is an example of how Android is opening the market to people who cannot pay ? 500 for a phone or do not want to commit to a company and a contract, it is the case of Huawei Ideos, an Android phone that costs just over ? 50.

Our Xataka Android colleagues told us a few days ago, the success this phone is having in Kenya. In this case we talk about a phone with a 2.8 ? screen, a 3.2MP camera and 256 MB of RAM.

But it opens a range of possibilities to users in the country with applications that can be put to good use. Like M-Farm (application to advertise our agricultural products and their prices), MEDKenya (in beta still closed, but trying to inform the Kenyan society about diseases, symptoms, treatments …), or Kenyan Football For Android (application you would do the delights of Maldini, Axel Torres or our teammates of Tu Futbolin).

Not to mention niche phones, that is, those dedicated to specific population groups: children, women, youth, seniors, entrepreneurs … Even for people with tight pants who want to easily take their cell phone out of their pocket.

There is everything, and that is the good thing about Android, which is popularizing the world of smartphones and that enters through different interest groups. Like Manzana revolutionized the smartphone concept with its iPhone and it is the germ from which all this starts.

Resuscitating dead gadgets

You will have read that HP It is going to discontinue the development and manufacturing of the devices on which the WebOS operating system was running, for example you could do it thanks to our colleagues from Omicrono. So the Palm or the TouchPad are in the doldrums precisely because of that. They are dead … or not?

I have already told you a thousand times, the best thing about Android is us, community, and we may find a wonderful example. What if Android will revive the circuits of these devices, for example the tablet from HP, the Touchpad?
