Since long, HTC had been the exclusive provider for Google Android phones, which had wide range of options to chose from. Samsung Electronics yesterday joined with network operator Taiwan Mobile to try to steal the spotlight from rival HTC — The Samsung i7500, in Taiwan.
HTC had worked with Google to develop the first smartphone based on Android, the HTC Dream which was good enough and now the latest Android handset from HTC, the HTC Hero.
HTC still holds the widest range of Android devices. Other companies joining the race include the Ultra cool Sony’s Xperia X3 Rachael, and one Motorola handset.
Why more and more Vendors will be adopting Android ?
The reason is obvious, it’s free, Open Source and industry standard for Mobile OS. Mobile vendors no longer have to spend money buying Symbian, windows and other Mobile OS. and most important Android is highly customizable.
