Android set to launch on schedule
It seems that the internet is all hyped up today on the fact that Google’s Android may not make it’s launch schedule. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Open Handset Alliance may not release any devices till late in the 4th quarter of 2008 or early 2009. I hope the reported over at the Wallstreet Journal did their homework before writing up that story, but it doesn’t seem like they have. Currently, HTC is the only manufacturer that has committed to developing an Android powered device. Late last year HTC promised to release the device before the end of 2008. I’m not 100% sure, but before the end of 2008 still falls into the 4th quarter, right? google may still be tweaking the Android OS to make it work better for others in the Open Handset Alliance, but that does not indicate that it will be delayed. Until we hear something from HTC, telling us that their Android based phone will be shipping late, we can all rest easy and hope to see it just in time for the Holidays.
