Android versions from a

Initially, the Android mobile operating system was developed by Android Inc whose founder was Andy Rubin. Later in July 2005, Andy was ready to sell Android and they gave a proposal to Samsung Group but they refused it, and at last Google LLC. own the Android Operating System for $50 million which was quite the best deal.

On 23rd September 2008, Google released its first-ever stable version 1.0 with API level 1 which was not having any codename. And after some time they released another version 1.2 with API level 2 and that too was not having any codename.

And it is clearly shown on google’s official website, that Android 1.0(A) and 1.1(B) don’t have any codename. Except for that other versions are named with bakery food.
