Far EasTone to Drop a Pair of Android Handsets in ’09

fareastoneGoogle’s decision to set up camp in Taiwan is looking better all the time.  Wanting to work closer with members of the Open Handset Alliance and further Android, it appears that this is exactly what is happening.  Today, PC World is reporting that Taiwanese Far EasTone is working with a “leading” local handset maker to launch two smartphones running Android.

The first Android handset is expected in the third quarter of this year, according to a company statement. Apparently, they have been working on the project for several months now and is working to make customized software for the phones.

Far EasTone did not say exactly which Taiwanese handset maker they’re working.  HTC seems like the most logical choice, but there are plenty of others who could fit the bill.  Take your pick…

  • Acer
  • Asustek Computer
  • Quanta Computer
  • Compal Communications
  • Inventec Appliances
  • Wistron NeWeb
  • BenQ
