Abstract: Android operating system is designed for use in mobile computing by The Open Handset Alliance. Android market has hundreds of thousands of Android applications and these applications are restricted only to the mobiles. This restriction is mainly because of portability and compatibility issues of Android operating system. So need of employing these countless Android applications on any POISX Desktop operating system without disturbing the internal structure of application is very desirable. Thus we need to resolve these standardization and portability concerns by using POSIX standards (Portable Operating System Interface). The concepts of POSIX conformance for Android applications provide full-scale portability services and Android applications reusability for any POSIX desktop operating system. So Android applications will become usable for all POISX desktop users. This research theme introduces POSIX.1 Android thin layer model that simply provides the POSIX conformance for Android applications. It is using the POSIX.1 APIs for Android applications, which maintains the compatibility between the POISX Desktop operating systems and Android applications. We have analyzed our research work by implementation of the different applications in standard POSIX environment and, have verified its results. The results of POSIX.1 model clearly showed that it will boost up the Android applications market revenue up to 100% plus add real-time standardization and reusability.
