Sike! KTF Ain't Working on No Android Devices

It’s been a matter of hours since we reported that founding Open Handset Alliance member NTT DoCoMo is working on an Android handset with KT Freetel (KTF).  We were expecting a device in 2009 for  20% less cost than current, run-of-the-mill smartphones.  The truth is, we can probably expect this to happen.  The only difference now is that KTF is saying that they’re not involved in it.

Android is free and will save OEM’s lots of money.  That’s not rumor.  What is rumor though, is everything else.  Until drawings, videos, and pictures start leaking, we can’t substantiate things from companies simply based on words alone.

Unwired View is now reporting that KTF and NTT DoCoMo “never held discussions on the joint development of a smartphone model.”  Okay.  Back to your day.
