Updates on Acer, Sony Ericsson, and Panasonic Handsets

acer_panasonic_sony_ericssonAdd another name to the ever growing list of Androidhandset makers.  Panasonic is thinking about getting in on the Android juggernaut.  Speaking at a press conference on their future business strategies, Panasonic board member Keisuke Ishii said, “We are seriously considering developing an Android-based handset and entering overseas mobile phone markets in fiscal 2010.”  No specific details were given beyond that. 

Even though it’s been realtively quiet out of the Sony Ericsson camp, they confirmed this week that they were working to release an Android handset in the “near future.”  It’s pretty tough to get through a translated page to glean much information but we did see that it is expected to be released using Android 2.0, which is currently being touted as Donut.  The term ‘near’ future is subjective so don’t go thinking 2.0 is right around the corner just yet.

Acer still plans to get their first Android handset out this year.  With 9 out of 10 upcoming handset running Windows Mobile, the smartest phone they’ll release in 2009 will be Android.
