T-Mobile G1, the first phone based on Android software developed by Google and its partners, just debuted this morning. And it looks like a bunch more phones will come out in the next six months.
I just got off the phone with Jason Bremner, a director of product management at Qualcomm, whose chips power the G1. He says Qualcomm is actively working on additional Android phones with five different handset manufacturers. The phones will be in different price ranges, and will come out “in the next few quarters,” he says. “I expect most, if not all of Qualcomm’s current customers are seriously looking at Android.”
Analysts expect Motorola, Samsung and LG to come out with at least one Android model each pronto. I wonder who the other manufacturers are.
