Who is the founder of Android?

Android is the most prominent operating system (OS) for mobile phones, tablets, and other similar devices. It is the most popular and the highest selling OS on the market. So how did it come to be?

Android was originally developed by Android Inc., which is based out of Palo Alto, California in October 2003. The company and the OS was founded by Andy Rubin with Rich Miner, Nick Sears, and Chris White. Their aim was to develop "smarter mobile devices that are more aware of its owner's [sic] location and preferences".

The company and the OS were then acquired by Google in July 2005. Since then, Google has developed Android into the platform that it is today.
