50 Examples of Android Innovations

From Home Automation Televisions to Curved-Display Laptops

— May 13, 2015 — Tech
Competing with Apple's consumer-friendly products is at the forefront of many tech companies' missions and this collection of Android innovations is chock full of amazing ways Google is helping them along the way. From mobile apps to home entertainment systems and everything in between, this platform provides numerous opportunities that are easy to use, convenient and often cheaper.

With a focus on form as much as function, the Android innovations ensure that it competes on the same level as Apple as well -- an element that was missing just a few years ago. Yet it's clear that these Android innovations embrace collaboration, which allows for such improvements. Through an open system and versatile technology, companies are able to capitalize greatly on this platform.
