Japan’s top wireless provider, NTT DoCoMo Inc. is working with partner KTF Co (South Korea) to develop a smartphone using Google’s Android software.  According to  the Nikkei business daily, it’s slated to happen next year.

NTT DoCoMo is a founding member of the Open Handset Alliance and owns 10% of KTF.  In an effort to cut costs, the two companies have been, and will be, jointly putting out handsets.
