UnknownHostException while accessing Internet – Android

I am creating a new HelloWorld application for HTTP URL Connection demo. While accessing http://www.google.com, I am getting UnknownHostException

Obvious, we need to grant the permission for internet access. Hence add the android.permission.INTERNET permission in the manifest file as given below.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
<uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="9" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"></uses-permission>
<application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name">
<activity android:name=".HellodroidActivity"
<action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
