Did you know that Android has two birthdays, depending on when you start from? Of course, it was in development for years before the public saw it, but it was “born” on the first commercial release date (September 23, 2008) or the first official launch date of Google on November 5, 2007. Well, that last date goes exactly as it is today, happy 13th birthday (ish), Android.

If you’re feeling excited about the platform, maybe it’s time for a trip upstream of memory.

Earlier this year, we got our hands on a stock Android prototype with pretty much anything we know about the platform, and I spent the better part of a week (again) using it as the primary device. mine. If you’ve ever wondered what Android could have been like if it came out of the Blackberry era, this is it.
However, you choose to celebrate it: Happy 13th birthday, Android.
