Samsung to Offer 3 Android Handset in 2009
The South Korean handset maker plans to release three Android devices this year, the first of which will be launched outside of the US.Â However, when it comes to us here in the states, Samsung says we’ll have two completely different looking handsets to choose from.Â Keeping with earlier rumblings, the phones will be available on separate carriers, likely T-Mobile and Sprint.
Curious as to why Samsung has not released an Android phone yet?Â Dr. Won-Pyo Hong, executive VP of global product strategy says Samsung was waiting for the “all clear” from its operator partners.
Our commitment is more to the Android phone than the Google Experience device.”
Some operators were worried Google’s long term vision has [and] that affected [timing].Â Samsung is also looking to put their own feel to Android and wants to make that experience distinctly different than a “Google Experience.”Â Sounds like maybe Sprint (and maybe T-Mobile) want future handsets to look lessGoogle-y and more like their brand.
