Android Phones Coming from Motorola and Nokia?


HTC isn’t the only manufacturer getting in on the Google Android action, because a couple of rather major players are building some development teams that will focus on the new smartphone platform. Yes, the T-Mobile G1 will be the first commercially available Google Android phone, but it most certainly will not be the last.

From what we hear, Motorola has put together a team of no fewer than 350 developers who will focus on developing phones that are powered by Android. This is a substantial increase from the current staff count of just 50 employees dedicated to the cause. Remember that Motorola was one of the original members of the Open Handset Alliance, the group that got together to build Android in the first place.

Motorola isn’t alone, it seems, because Nokia is sniffing around with possibilities of an Android phone as well. Nokia is not officially part of the OHA, but it could be expressing interest. The same can be said about Verizon, so you could be getting some Android-powered VCAST action as well.
