Samsung and LG to release Android phones in Q3 2009 at the earliest
In a report about what industry observers are saying about the recently announced T-Mobile Android G1, Telecoms Korea drops word on the soonest possible release date of Android phones from Samsung and LG.
While Mirae Asset Securities Co., Ltd. was sharing its thoughts about the T-Mobile G1, saying it was “short of expectations,” it said that Samsung and LG will release their version of the Google phone “in the second half of 2009 at the earliest.” That should give them enough time to tweak Android and make sure the handsets are at their best.
The report also mentions that the biggest hindrance to the GPhone’s success is the fact that there is skepticism among mobile advertising sponsors, who apparently do not have enough faith in Google’s smartphone profit model: selling apps and other mobile content.
