At the time of the release of Prime Android, November 5, 2007, with the Open Handset Alliance's Android States support the development of open standards on a mobile device.

This shows indication that Google is preparing to face competition in the mobile phone market.
Around September 2007 a study reporting that Google filed a patent application in a mobile phone (finally Google introduces Nexus One, one kind of smart phones that use Android on a GSM system operations.

On December 9, 2008, it was announced the new members who join the program working Android ARM Holdings, Atheros Communications, Asustek Computer Inc, Garmin Ltd, Softbank, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba Corp, and Vodafone Group Plc. With the formation of the Open Handset Alliance, the OHA announced their first product, Android, mobile device (mobile) which is a modified Linux kernel 2.6. Since Android has done a variety of updates released in the form of bug fixes and the addition of new features.
