What are your earliest memories of Android? Were you paying attention to the platform all the way back in 2007 and 2008? We certainly were.
For this season of the AndroidGuys podcast we’re taking a trip through time, looking at each version of the Android platform.
We often take for granted all of the great things that our devices do for us. There was a time when our smartphones could not do “basic” things by today’s definition. The series of podcasts aims to educate listeners about the features added into Android along the way.
