Google's Android platform is designed around the fact that most modern day phones equipped with a 200MHz or better processor will be able to run it easily. It will be available in both touch screen and button-based versions and will include, as expected, around 20 Google applications by default – among those is Gmail, YouTube and Google Maps.
Of course, Android’s open-source nature allow developers to create their own applications – Google has even set aside $10 million in awards for developers who submit the most creative apps to the Android Developer Challenge. Another noteworthy feature is Android’s ability to run multiple applications at the same time while reportedly conserving memory usage and battery life.
