Google buys Android

CNET "Google has reportedly snapped up the mobile startup Android, based in Palo Alto, Calif.
Typical of Google's acquisition strategy, the search giant quietly bought the wireless start-up in July for an undisclosed sum, according to a report published Wednesday in Business Week Online. Google acknowledged the transaction in the report.
Android operated quietly itself. Little is published on the company's Web site, or in the press. But it's the next generation operation of Andy Rubin, who previously founded mobile-device maker Danger. Android reportedly makes software, or operating systems, for wireless devices that are location-sensitive or personalized for the owner."
