I was actually thinking about this the other day and according to Wiki (which I don't always trust 100%) Alpha and Beta were not the same as the first and second release versions:
So I gathered from all of this that the Beta (Bender) came out first in 07, then 1.0 came out in 2008, 1.1 in the beginning of 2009, and so on from there.The pre-release versions of Android were dubbed Astro and Bender, but these names could not ultimately be used for trademark reasons.
The Android beta was released on 5 November 2007, while the software developer's kit (SDK) was released on 12 November 2007.
Android 1.0, the first commercial version of the software, was released on 23 September 2008. The first Android device, the HTC Dream (G1),
On 9 February 2009, the Android 1.1 update was released, initially for the T-Mobile G1 only.
If you always seem to have drama in your life, you are probably the one causing the drama.
If customer service representatives or restaurant servers always seem to be rude to you, you are probably the one being rude.
If your computer always seems to be freezing up on you, you're probably doing something wrong.
In my experience, drama begets drama, rudeness begets rudeness, and ineptitude begets ineptitude.
Good thing this thread got hijacked. The OP needs to do some reading before posting.
