Android is an operating system, designed primarily for mobile phones and devices but will see some use in ultra portable laptops (netbooks). It was developed largely by Google and the Open Handset Alliance. While recent releases allow "native code" to be developed, most applications are designed using Java. More details on Android and it's history are available at the Android (operating system) page at Wikipedia.
