Soltow September 22, 2010 American Intercontinental University Abstract: Google Android is a mobile operating system developed by Google and is based upon a modified version of the Linux kernel. It was initially developed by Android Inc. (a firm purchased by Google) With the exception of brief update periods, Android has been available as open source since October 21 2008. Google published the entire source code under a free Apache License. With the Apache License, vendors can add proprietary extensions without submitting those back to the open source community. The very first commercially available phone to run the Android operating system was the HTC Dream and is now available on over 25 separate models just offered by HTC alone. Research company Canalys estimates that by Q2 2009, Android had a 2.8% share of the worldwide smartphone market. And by the following quarter the market share had grown to 3.5%.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
