To prevent any more of Android's past from being lost to the annals of history, we did what needed to be done. This is 20+ versions of Android, seven devices, and lots and lots of screenshots cobbled together in one space. This is The History of Android, from the very first public builds to the newest version of KitKat.

Very detailed, and a fun read.

Seems the edit window is closed, so i have to reply to myself.

Anyways, if the title had said "the visual history" or "the interface history" i would not complain as loudly. But it says "the history" yet gloss over all the internal changes.

Never mind that it is one more article that conflate ASOP Android and the Google apps suite. Those two are not joined at the hip, as Amazon (and now Nokia/Microsoft) has shown us.
