Android was originally built for cameras

 

Millions of people bank on the Android operating system, each and every day to power their smartphones and tablets.

 

Android Inc. co-founder Andy Rubin reveals that the operating system was originally designed for cameras. “The exact same operating system we built for cameras, that became Android for cellphones”.

 

As per the statement, the plan was dropped because they felt that there was not enough potential in the digital camera market. "We decided digital cameras weren’t actually a big enough market. I was worried about Microsoft and I was worried about Symbian, I wasn't worried about iPhone yet."

 

In 2005 Android was acquired by Google. It is now the world's leading mobile phone OS, with more than 750 million mobile devices featuring Android in use across the world.

 

Currently, Samsung and Nikon are offering smart cameras running on Android OS, the Samsung Galaxy Camera and Nikon Coolpix S800C.
