Today Android has taken the world by storm, literally! While it is a well know fact that Google acquired Android way back in 2005, little is known about Android prior to 2005. I was very curious to know more about it. My search lead me to various articles and websites, the most helpful being Internet Archive Wayback Machine.
The domain was registered for the first time in mid-’97 (1997-06-23, to be precise), I couldn’t find any screenshot of the website for 1997, the earliest I could find was of March 2000. At that point, the domain was owned by GreatDomains.com. Apparently, the company wanted to sell it for $75,000+, outrageously overpriced if you consider it for “Just Another Domain” at that point in time but dirt cheap if you consider its value now! 🙂
