An Intent is an abstract concept for some sort of operation that should be performed in the Android OS. It's often used to launch external applications with the intent to do something, such as make a phone call, display a web page, or map an address. As such, an Intent generally has two pieces of informtion associated with it; first, what the intent is (as in make a phone call), and second, what data does the intent need (such as a phone number) to perform the intention.
