    Android is an incredibly fast, easy to use versatile, absolutly phenominally adaptive and full of fun Operating System.
    It ecompasses the freedom of choice in all aspects of cyberspace.
    Not only that...but...it's unique and personal at the same time.
    What's that mean? Look up the word "Developer". Simply put..."ANDROID IS U"
    You make it you, I'm slayed!
