Sony Ericsson to make Android phones for Orange – almost confirmed

T-Mobile has the G1 and the upcoming G2, while Vodafone has the HTC Magic. So the folks over at Orange probably thought: hey, we could have some more Android handsets of our own, besides the HTC Dream.

Reportedly, the Taiwanese newspaper Commercial Times says that Orange’s new   Android phones will come from Sony Ericsson before the end of 2009. This confirms the info we’ve got back in March regarding Orange’s Android plans

It’s said that the Android phones which will bare SE’s brand would be outsourced to Foxconn – the manufacturer that also makes Apple’s iPhone.

Further details are currently missing, but I guess we should expect some cool handsets from SE and Orange. On a related note, we should also expect other major carriers to come up with their own Google phones.
