Samsung Android to land within months?

Exec hints at pre-July launch

Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Samsung has already confirmed that it'll launch a phone based on Google’s Android OS this year, but the launch date may be closer than anticipated.

The firm said this week that it’s currently “accelerating the development process for Google phones”.

But Chi Youngcho, Head of Digital Media and Communications at Samsung, has since told analysts that the first half of 2009 will see it unveil smartphones with “various OSes”, to satisfy the diverse needs of its customers.

Samsung – which has already embraced Windows Mobile, Symbian and Linux for its phones – has also officially stated that its Android phone will appear on the T-Mobile and Sprint Nextel networks.

The first Samsung Android is rumoured to sport a full touchscreen and be similar in size to the Omnia – reviewed here. ®
