Google Expects 18-20 Android Handsets Out By The End Of The Year

Labels: ,

At Google I/O, Andy Rubin announced that he expects 18 to 20 Android-based handsets to be available by the end of the year. Besides that, he also pointed out 3 different Android versions that will be released.

  • Google-free: Free to download version of Android without Google applications like Gmail or Google Calendar. Access to Android applications is at the whimsical fancy of the manufacturer. 

  • Strings attached: Same as above but manufacturers sign a distribution agreement with Google and pre-install the Google applications. Of Rubin's possible 20 phones, 12 to 14 fall into this category 

  • The Google Experience: Phones featuring the Google logo with all Google apps installed and includes unrestricted access (neither the carrier nor handset maker can block applications they find objectionable) to the Android market. 5 or 6 of the 20, Android phone mentioned by Rubin will deliver the full Google Experience as god and Sergey designed it.

  • I can't wait to see all of the future Android handsets, because we've only seen about 6 or 7 different handsets so far.
