Android was built to enable developers to design feature-rich, state-of-the-art mobile products such as mobile phones, smartphones, Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), and Netbooks, with a built-in time-to-market advantage. Data has shown product development life cycles can be reduced significantly with Android compared to traditional development approaches. But successfully delivering a commercial product using the Android framework is a challenge since no formal support is available and Android is a complex software framework requiring a strong knowledge of the Linux kernel and firmware.
