It contains not just a central processing unit (CPU), but also a graphics processing unit (GPU), global positioning system (GPS), modems for LTE and Wi-Fi, and whatever is needed to create a complete chip to power a mobile device.

This dedicated experience is focused on providing education, prevention, and local resources. Last Friday, President Donald Trump revealed that “Google” was developing a coronavirus screening website. It quickly emerged that Google sister company Verily was the one responsible for an effort that incorporates a symptoms questionnaire, directions to drive through testing sites, and returns results. However, it was not the “nationwide” initiative touted by US officials with only limited availability in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Once it's turned on, you can connect to a computer running ADB on the same WiFi network.
