  1. Android is a mobile operating system created by Google and tweaked through open source development. Google calls the system a software stack; various layers put several software programs together in groups to support specific operating system functions. Google will likely make changes to improve the system as it's used in more smartphones. Or, because of the open source approach, it's entirely possible another developer will tweak the system.
