Android: A visual history

As an owner of a number of Android phones, I loved this article from The Verge. I've been on the Android bandwagon from the beginning. This article was a fun walk down memory lane, and a great way to see how Android has evolved over time. Things we take for granted now didn't always exist (software keyboard, multiple GMail account support, and many other things).

The article specifically mentions six Android devices:
- HTC G1
- Motorola Droid
- HTC Nexus One
- Samsung Nexus S
- Motorola Xoom (tablet)
- Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I have had three of the six mentioned above (G1, Nexus One, Nexus S), and still might pick up the Galaxy Nexus. Of all my phones, I think that the HTC Nexus One was the most ahead of its time when released. Many people I work with still use one as their primary phone two years after its release, even though they could get a newer phone. I still love mine, and have picked up others for family.
