It's that time again... Andy the Android just had a new birthday! It's crazy how fast time flies, but November 5th, 2014 is Android's 7th birthday. November 5th, 2007 was the day that Google surprised everyone by creating the Open Handset Alliance along with the Android OS, instead of creating a locked system like iOS. Most people in the mobile industry knew that Google would come out with a touch-screen smartphone, but no one expected it to become the dominate mobile OS of choice in just a few short years.
Below is that first video of Google announcing the Open Handset Alliance. After you watch it and reminisce for a bit, go find some cake and/or ice cream to celebrate Android's 7th B-Day!
