Who wouldn't want one,when you know a little bit about how it's built, Google the biggest internet company in the world developed the Android phone and partnered up with a company called High Tech to build a G1 Cell Phone, the G1 cell phone runs off of the first Android platform and has it's own operating system and platform. There is one significant difference with the Android cell phone, it runs off of a Java script language that is ran by a Linux operating system, is a basic doorway passage for the open source software.

When the Android cell phone is used, it utilizes the internet through it's web kit, the Android phone uses the Web kit to power its G1 Lite Browser. The Android cell phone can utilize a variety of applications at the same time and in the background of the cell phone, building upon the multitasking function.

One very positive aspect of the Android cell phone is that the Android phone isn't tied to any one manufacturer; any manufacturer can produce their version of the Android phone. Companies like Sprint, Verizon, AT & T, T-Mobile have produced their version of the Android phone.
