Foxconn forms Android R&D team, possibly for Motorola’s future smartphones

Foxconn, one of the world’s largest electronics manufacturers, has reportedly established an Android research and development team, with the obvious intention to produce smartphones based on Google’s open source platform.

I’m sure you’ve already heard of Foxconn, but, in case you haven’t, you should know the company manufactures products that reach the market under famous brands like Apple (Mac Mini, iPod, iPhone), Dell, HP, Intel, Sony and Amazon (the Kindle e-reader).

Foxconn also makes handsets for Motorola, so it’s likely that the mentioned  R&D  team will  work  to develop Android smartphones for the big M.

Motorola has been rumored to come with an Android handset as early as Q2 2009, so Foxconn’s venture into Android-land pretty much makes sense.

Now let’s wait and see what will come out of this.
