Android is an operating system for mobile devices which consists of middleware and key applications, and uses a modified version of the Linux kernel. It was initially developed by Android Inc., a firm later purchased by Google, and lately by the Open Handset Alliance. It is also rummored that Android OS smartphones ranked second among all smartphone OS handsets sold in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2010. Let’s take an in-dept look at the best Android cell phones as follows:
The HTC Droid Incredible
The HTC Droid Incredible is Verizon’s latest and greatest Android device. The phone features a 3.7-inch AMOLED display with 800-by-480 resolution and runs on a 1GHz Snapdragon processor which can carry out multi tasks. To be specific, the HTC Droid Incredible has an 8-megapixel camera.
The HTC EVO 4G
The HTC EVO 4G is the hot new Android handset of the time. The EVO 4G supplies the promise of superspeedy 4G data speeds. Moreover, the EVO 4G is one powerful phone as it runs on the same 1GHz Snapdragon chip as the Incredible and has the double-snapshot combo of an 8-megapixel camera in the back and a 1.3-megapixel camera in the front. The EVO 4G’s most distinguishing feature is its 4.3-inch, 800-by-480 WVGA display.

The revealing of Motorola’s Droid marked the beginning of Verizon’s Droid brand and its accompanying commercial push to make Android a household name.
