Did you know: Android was originally designed for digital cameras not phones

Android is synonymous with smartphones. It’s the most popular mobile operating system in the world, powering more than 2.5 billion active devices. However, a lot of people don’t know that the OS wasn’t originally designed for phones.

At the economic summit in Tokyo back in 2013, Andy Rubin — the co-founder of Android — revealed that Android was originally made for digital cameras. The plan was to create a camera platform that would include cloud storage for images and videos. That way, users likely wouldn’t have to rely on a camera’s onboard storage as much and could easily access their photos from multiple devices. During his speech in Japan’s capital, Rubin even showed the slides he used to pitch the idea to investors back in 2004. The interest was apparently low, so he wasn’t able to close the deal at the time.

Back in the day when internet was restricted. Cuban gamers made makeshift internet network themselves to play games.
