Consumers are really spoilt with choices! If iPhone is not enough for you, maybe Google Android can be?
T-Mobile will be the first carrier to offer a mobile phone powered by Google’s Android software, according to people briefed on the company’s plans. The phone will be made by HTC and is expected to go on sale in the United States before Christmas, perhaps as early as October. The high-end phone is expected to match many of the capabilities of Apple’s iPhone and other so-called smartphones that run software from Palm, Research in Motion, Microsoft and Nokia to access the Internet and perform computerlike functions. The HTC phone, which many gadget sites are calling the ‘dream,’ will have a touch screen, like the iPhone. But the screen also slides out to expose a full five-row keyboard.
Only time will tell if Google could fend off competition from Apple iPhone, Blackberry or Nokia in the smartphone market.
