So almost everyone here is a Android guy or using it for a long time.

Let's get back to past.

So when you heard the name Android
And when you got an Android device ?

Share your story to us and have some fun with memories.

My story :
I don't actually remember when I heard the name for the first time but as I can remember I was using a Symbian phone and in a website I saw the name Android in app categories. Maybe it's 2011.
And my 1st Android phone was Samsung Galaxy Y young . My last Samsung as well

Whenever Google announced it I think. I remember thinking "Wow! Linux on my phone... supported by Google?? This is a dream come true."

Oh, how young and naive I was

As far as I remember, I first heard of Android with the release of the Samsung Galaxy S2, I myself started using Android in 2014.

A m8s of me went with meh to buy Nokia GSM
And when at store
m8s said that touchpad/touchscreen is 'NOW'
I wanted Nokia Asha GSM
So copped 'Smartphoni'
And when installed Parts of A ROM: AlienROM V5-V6
for my XPERIA E
I encountered ViPER4Android which did not work
because no r00t/busybox, and really wanted it because it felt interesting.
Now I have X Compact (Kugo)
I like SONY kind of phones, X-series

first time I heard about Android was when the woman from Vodafone tried to sell me my old HTC Magic back in 2009 together with a mobile data contract. I didn't think highly of mobilephones until then but Android really changed my view (especially because of the Linux internals)

The first time I watched a sci-fi movie as a kid, about 35 years ago.
