Samsung is a founding member of the Open Handset Alliance, so the fact that the company is preparing an Android handset is surely not a surprise.
What might be a surprise, though, is that the first Samsung Android phone could be released via not one, but two major US carriers: Sprint and T-Mobile (which already has the G1 built by HTC).
If we’re to believe ET News, the Android-powered Samsung device will hit North America sometime in the second quarter of 2009.
Design-wise, the handset is said to be something between Samsung Omnia and Samsung Instinct, so we should expect it to look simple but cool.
As for the features of Samsung’s first Android handset, these are not known for the moment. However, more details should emerge soon, and we’ll be glad to bring ‘em to you.
