Android Inc.founded in Palo Alto,california

,united states in October 2003 by Andy

Rubin[co-founder of danger ],rich miner[cofounder of wildfire communication Inc.],nick
sears[once VP at T-mobile],
and Chris white[headed design and interface
development at web TV] to develop.

It is a open source software platform and operating system

for mobile devices

Based on the Linux kernel

Developed by Google and later the Open Handset Alliance

Allows writing managed code in the Java language

Android has its own virtual machine i.e. DVM(Dalvik Virtual

Machine),which is used for executing the android applicatn.

Google purchased the initial developer of the software ,

android incorporated in 2005.

Open Handset Alliance

The open handset alliance(OHA) is a
business alliance of firm to develop
open standard for mobile devices.
Devoted to advancing open standards
for mobile devices
Develop technologies that will
significantly lower the cost of developing
and distributing mobile devices and

Open Handset Alliance (OHA) included

several companies

Upcoming Android
Will be Released
october 2013


The software stack is split intoFour Layers::
The application layer
The application framework
The libraries and runtime
The kernel


The architecture is based on the Linux2.6 kernel.

This layer is core of android architecture. It provides
service like power management, memory management,
security etc.
It helps in software or hardware binding for better


Android has its own libraries, which is written in C/C+

+. These libraries cannot be accessed directly. With
the help of application framework, we can access
these libraries. There are many libraries like web
libraries to access web browsers, libraries for android
and video formats etc.

Android Run Time

The Android Runtime was designed specifically for

Android to meet the needs of running in an embedded
environment where you have limited battery, limited
memory, limited CPU.
Dalvik is the process virtual machine in Google's
android operating system. It is the software that runs the
apps on android devices. Dalvik is thus an integral part
of android ,which is typically used on mobile devices
such as mobile phones and tablet computers.
Programs are commonly written in java and compiled to
byte code.

Android Run Time

This is in blue, meaning that it's written in

the Java programming language.
The core library contains all of the collection
classes, utilities, IO, all the utilities and tools
that youve come to expected to use.

Application Framework

This is all written in a Java programming language and

the application framework is the toolkit that all
applications use.
These applications include the ones that come with a
phone like the home applications, or the phone
It includes applications written by Google, and it
includes apps that will be written by you.
So, all apps use the same framework and the same


These are as follows: Activity manager:-It manages the lifecycle of applications. It

enable proper management of all the activities. All the activities
are controlled by activity manager.
Resource manager:-It provides access to non-code resources
such as graphics etc.
Notification manager:-It enables all applications to display
custom alerts in status bar.
Location manager:- It fires alerts when user enters or leaves a
specified geographical location.
Package manager:-It is use to retrieve the data about installed
packages on device.
Window manager:-It is use to create views and layouts.
Telephony manager:-It is use to handle settings of network
connection and all information about services on device.


the final layer on top is Applications.

It includes the home application
application , the browser, and apps.



It is the most upper layer in android architecture.

All the applications like camera, Google maps,
browser,sms,calendars,contacts are native applications.
These applications works with end user with the help of
application framework to operate.

Android is a multi-process system, in which each

application (and parts of the system) runs in its own

process. Most security between applications and the
system is enforced at the process level through
standard Linux facilities, such as user and group IDs
that are assigned to applications.

Android is designed having multi layer security which provides flexibility

for this platform. When attackers attempt attack on device, android

platform help to reduce the portability of the attack.
There are key components of android security which are described as
Design review:-when a security model is designed then it will be reviewed
by the developers so that risk level will be very less while using the model.
Code review and penetrating testing:-the goal of this code review is that in
which it will be checked that how the system will become strong?
Open source and community review:-android uses open source
technologies that have significant external review such as Linux kernel.
Incident response:-android team enables the rapid mitigation of
vulnerabilities to ensure that potential risks to all android users are

Background Wi-Fi location still runs even when
Wi-Fi is turned of
Developer logging and analyzing enhancements
It is optimized for mobile devices.
It enables reuse and replacement of components.
Java support ,media support, multi touch, video
calling,multi tasking ,voice based features,
screen capture, camera ,bluetooth,gps,compass
and accelerometer,3G

The ability for anyone to customize the Google Android
It gives you better notification.
It lets you choose your hardware.
It has better app market(1,80,000 application)
A more mature platform
With the support of many applications, the user can
change the screen display.
With Google chrome you can open many window at
Supports all Google services: Android operating system
supports all of Google services ranging from Gmail to Google
reader. all Google services can you have with one operating
system, namely Android.

Android Market is less control of the manager,

sometimes there are malware.

Wasteful Batteries, This is because the OS is a
lot of "process" in the background causing the
battery quickly drains.
Sometimes slow device company issued an
official version of Android your own .
Extremely inconsistence in design among
Very unstable and often hang or crash.

We hope that the next versions
of Android have overcome the actual
limitations and that the future possibilities
became a reality and may this software is
also developed to use in PCs also.
