Android is used for: Replacing the hormone testosterone when the body does not make enough and stimulating puberty – Drugs.com

NOT! haha … I’m not talking about the drug, but rather the mobile phone engineered by Google.

With Google’s Android phone on the loose and it’s fascinating functionality in my humble opinion, I just can’t wait for its cool applications for biomedical informatics and how it might transform the way we provide healthcare.

For those of you who are not familiar with Google’s Android, this is what wikipedia defines it as

Android is a software platform and operating system for mobile devices, based on the Linux kernel, developed by Google and later the Open Handset Alliance. – Wikipedia.com

A lot of speculation by developers and clinicians are out with regards to what kind of developments and uses will the Android have. Sure, we will have those medical/health apps that can be found for the iPhone/iPodTouch, but just imagine the integration of Google’s Health online EMR

I’m getting so excited already!!
