The first handset to run Google’s Android platform will arrive much earlier than anticipated, it has been claimed.

“People familiar with the matter” have told the Reuters news agency that T-Mobile will start selling the Googlephone on 23 September - less than two weeks from today.

The unnamed sources even disclosed where the anticipated announcement will be made. “T-Mobile and Google will be making an announcement this month in New York City,” one of the informants alleged.

A report by the New York Times recently predicted that the Googlephone would go live in October.

Version 0.9 of the Android OS platform is already available to download.
