Android was developed by by Andy Rubin, Rich Miner, Nick Sears, and Chris White and founded in California in 2003.Rubin described the Android project as "immense potential in developing smarter mobile devices that are more aware of its owner's location and preferences".

A close friend of Rubin names Steve Perlman brought him $10,000 cash in an envelope, and shortly thereafter wired an undisclosed amount as seed funding. Perlman refused to stick in the company, and has stated "I did it because I believed in the thing, and I wanted to help Andy."
