    Hello All,

    Im very new at this but from what i know this is all very interesting and i want to learn more. I do have a few questions that i could not find answers to.

    • What is the difference between operating systems? as far as Andriod 1, 1.5, 1.6, 2.0.
    • Ive seen some phone that strictly run 1.0 or 1.5 or 2.0 but there are also some phones that run 1.5 + something else. Can someone explain this to me?
    • I dont have an android phone yet but i want one. If i get a pgone that is running 1.0 and i want to upgrade it to 2.0 is that possible? Or if the phone i get is running 1.5 + custom ui can i get that to just run 1.5 or 2.0? Or if i get a phone and android comes out with a new version like 2.5 can I upgrade my phone to it?
    • What is the most powerful device out or coming out? I dont care what carrier but if i get a phone i want it to be the best device. I would also want it to have the latest version of android but if i can upgrade it then it doesnt matter. I am also unsure about getting a phone with a custom ui ontop of android because i only want what google is making. I dont know how good a custom ui will be. Am i right?
    Thank you all in advance for helping me out!

    Each new phone will come with the newest OS or will be updated by OTA (over-the-air) or via a download link from the phone provider
