Christopher Dlugolinski c1739389 History of OS The Android operating system comes from a smaller company that was acquired by Google back in 2005. This started rumors on Google's development of a mobile phone. The operating system wouldn't be released on an actual phone until November 2007, it was released on the Dream or G1 phone. Since the initial release of the OS there have been 3 updates: V1.5 cupcake, v1.6 donut, v2.0 eclair, with more to come with newer versions of the Linux kernels. The IPhone operating system derived from OS-X was released in January 2007. There was then a 3G release of the phone in July 2008. Then in July 2009 there was a 3GS version released. There are many releases of the IPhone firmware which updates the functionality of the IPhone some are listed below, each of the releases offered more capability for the SDK and also for the phone: IPhone OS 3.2 Released: April 3, 2010 IPhone OS 3.1 Released: Sept. 9, 2009 IPhone Firmware 3.0 Released: June 17, 2009 IPhone Firmware 2.2 Released: Nov. 21, 2008 IPhone Firmware 2.1 Released: Sept. 12, 2008 IPhone Firmware 2.0 Released: July 11, 2008 IPhone Firmware 1.0.1 Released: Aug. 1, 2007 Hardware Description Android Android is run on many different types of hardware platforms and can have slightly different capabilities on different hardware. the description that follows is a description of the HTC Dream or the G1 phone that Android first made an appearance on. It came with a 528 MHz Qualcomm ARMII processor, with 192 MB RAM and 256 MB on board memory and external memory using a MicroSD up to 16 GB, there is no RF system. The interface includes a 3.17 inch display that does 480x320. It has a built in camera with zoom, but doesn't have flash that is because the hardware doesn't exist. The sensor that exist in the phone are the 3 axis accelerometer. Later there is a proximity sensor. The phone comes equipped with AGPS and QGPS, these are used in different ways the AGPS is one that uses the phone signal to help get your position, but the QGPS uses a downloaded week's worth of data from some satellites to help jumpstart your location. The audio system uses a mini-USB jack and needs a converter to a 3.5 jack, although the newer android phones come with this adapter. The battery life of the phone is 130 hours of standby and from my use of the phone It can go 1 full day with use including texting and GPS use.
