Android 9.0 Update (Everything you need to Know about Android P OS)

Yes, this amazing operating system has brought revolution in the mobile industry. Before the release of the Android operating system no one even can imagine about the revolution it can bring. Yeah! we are talking about some 10 years ago, most probably in September 2008. Before that, it was java phones revolution. But the features Android offer to users were far more superior than the Java operating systems.

That was really like a dream come true to use the android for the first time. It was the wonderful experience to know the features of the Android operating system. Google got the amazing response to this ultimate product in a very short span of time. This was even unexpected results for them.

It was the boon for the mobile phone industry who adopted the Android and launched new mobile phone sets in collaboration with google android. Those mobile companies who have rejected to adopt Android Operating System for their Mobile sets had to see a major downfall in their business.

Developers are making many guesses around, what P stands for latest Android version. There are speculations for P stands for Android Pie, Android Pecan Pie, Android Pumpkin Pie, Pineapple Cake, Android Pistachio Ice Cream, Android Popsicle, Android Pop Tart, etc. There are chances that Google will choose one from all these suggested options but most probably the last and final decision regarding the name of Latest android version is in hands of Google itself only.
