The mobile industry today celebrates a marked moment: Android has spent 10 years.

the T-Mobile G1, also known as HTC Dream, the first phone to make its debut on September 23 with a new and unrecognized operating system for Android 1.0.

Today 10 years later it is the dominant platform and through the existence has overthrown many giants.

In its infancy it was far from the operating system we know today. First you could not play video at Yotube. Google Play was called Android Market and had only a limited number of apps. Even there was no virtual keyboard.

Andy Rubin and his team designed Android as a BlackBerry-like experience before the Apple iPhone launched a revolution.

But the basic formula was there, an Internet-focused operating system.

Utilizing this potential, Android adoption broke out thanks to the fast software updates. Morotola Droid and Samsung Galaxy S, two flagships gave even more software fuss.

At the end of 2010, it was the most popular mobile operating system, and the wildest competitors had almost faded.

If the first BlackBerry hit, Symbian and Windows Mobile gave iPhone, Android was the one who dropped.

Companies behind these platforms had no choice or to adopt Android or die.

Android rivals realized late that the game had already changed and experiences were built around mobile apps, mobile web, and touch interfaces.

Today Android is the “owner” of any smartphone that does not come from Apple. By the end of 2017 there were 2 billion active Android devices.

The operating system is found beyond tablet phones, smart clocks, televisions and virtual reality devices.

It is even present on computers thanks to Chrome OS where you can install Android applications.

The question we are asking today is what will be done with Android in the next 10 years? The company has started working on long-term projects like Fuchia who one day can replace Android.
