Why was Android created ? Don't we have enough mobile phone OS already.

Didn't you say in the other topic that it was good that there are mobile options for Java developers?

Also, the question sounds a bit like "Why does Hyundai make cars, aren't there enough car companies in the world already?"

Well I posted this question before I said "Android is good for Java guys " . My understanding is Android is newer than say ios? Is that correct. What does it have which others dont have, It shouldn't be one more in the crowd or "I too created a new OS"

That's debatable. Android Inc. (later bought by Google) was founded in 2005, while the iPhone wasn't released until 2008 - who knows when its development got started.

It shouldn't be one more in the crowd or "I too created a new OS"

If you didn't think my comment about car companies was relevant, let's try another tack: Are you saying Linux should not have been started? If you don't, where do you see differences between the two situations? If you do, then I suppose you don't put much stock in competition.

Well Linux had some advantages
- Open source
- Low cost
- Stability
- Performance
-Works on low end machines

I am a newbie to mobile app world. Forgive me if I ask stupid questions.
