Background Like a modern day Hewlett Packard, Android Inc. began as a true start-up firm. It was founded in late 2003 by Andy Rubin, a co-founder of Danger, with three former communications executives (Android, 2011).

The four members worked in secret until Google acquired the company in August 2005 (Android, 2011).
