Google’s new Android mobile operating system looks like being pretty popular, if sales forecasts of the first Android-enabled handset, the HTC G1, are to be believed. There are already some great apps being developed for the platform, many of which take advantage of the mapping and positioning tools built into the Android framework.
If you’re looking to power-up your G1 device then check out Softonic’s new Android section, which serves up a selection of some great apps and games for download. Each program has been independently tested and reviewed by our team of mobile software experts, so you can find out if it’s something you’d like before you download it. Even if you haven’t got a G1 phone yet, you can still try out these programs using the Android emulator, to give you a taste of what the OS can do.
The Android software platform adds to the already huge collection of mobile software available on Softonic. The site contains reviews and downloads for all the major handheld formats, including iPhone, Symbian, Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Palm and Java.
