Interesting how within just about one year after the release of the first Android phone in Q3/2008, the list of companies that have launched or are close to launching an Android phone has gone far beyond just HTC. Here's an overview:
- Sony Ericsson
- Acer (o.k. a netbook, but let's count them, too)
The list's probably not complete and there are likely also some smaller less known Asian manufacturers who are in the game as well. So except Nokia and Apple, all major manufacturers are now in the boat, most with a multi-OS strategy. That could kind of make the air a bit thin in the future for other open OSes such as Symbian and Maemo. I guess Google must be pretty pleased with the success of their platform so far.
I still remember that not so long ago, few would have believed such a rapid development was possible. That includes me.
