Rumours are circulating that the HTC Android handset might be delayed until the first quarter of 2009:
In case you're new to this part of the Google empire, Android is a Linux-based collection of mobile phone software, including an operating system, a browser, and other applications. The company announced Android to much fanfare last year as a bid to unify the world of mobile Linux and set up Google as a dominant player on the next big computing frontier. HTC was expected to be one of the first handset makers to release an Android handset.
A Google spokesperson gave the following response:
UPDATED 4:20pm: A Google representative said the company doesn't comment on speculation, which is just no fun at all, but said "we remain on schedule to deliver the first Android-based handset this year and we're very excited to see the momentum continuing to build behind the Android platform among carriers, handset manufacturers, developers and consumers."
