Google buys mystery wireless startup Android

Google acquired mobile software startup Android. The 22-month-old startup is making software for mobile phones. No one seems to know very much about the company besides the fact that it seems to have been working on some form of location-based application for mobile phones. Some insiders suggest that Google plans to use Android's software to enhance its mobile search application with location and presence, though nothing has been revealed about the deal that confirms this. No financial details about Google's deal for Android were released.
