Happy 3rd Birthday, Android!

Today officially marks the third birthday of Android and the Open Handset Alliance.  It also happens to be the third anniversary of AndroidGuys.  What a long way we have both come!  Well, one is better known than the other, but that’s okay with us.  We’re betting not many of you knew we started this little site out of the back of a T-Mobile store only a couple of hours after Google’s fated press announcement.

We’ve made some terrific friends and acquaintances over the years and have Andy Rubin to thank for that.  It has been nothing short of a pleasure to help provide a voice to Android and we look forward to many years to come!

While we wait for Gingerbread and Honeycomb, let’s have a piece of cake!

    Its been a good 3 years. Android has seen a lot of great improvements and growth. I can only hope that Google decides to give us something special today. :) Maybe a “sweet” announcement? 😛

    I still rememeber opening the box for my G1… and not being able to put the phone down for weeks thinking “yeah there’s a great need to improve the software but man this is so much better than the stupid dash”….my g1 an I went thru a lot … 1.5, 1.6 a couple of Map updates (navigation!!) We were lovers everywhere I went she was there(maybe not everywhere…thanks tmobile) giving me directions or helping find the next movie showing for superbad…but like everything does it had to end…not that I was ready to let go…but I was realizing that I wasn’t in love with the outside and it was what was inside that matter to me…so I had to move on 2.2 just looks to damn sexy……
