As with all tech/mobile related rumors, remind yourself that it is just a rumor. That being said, this isn’t a far fetched claim. According to NewsOXY.com (who?) Samsung officials have confirmed they are working on an Android Phone that will be featured on both Sprint and T-Mobile and will be a touchscreen.
Other, unconfirmed reports have speculated that the Samsung Android Phone would be cut from the same mold as the Omnia and Instinct and that it should be ready within the first half of 2009. NONE of this information is surprising and it sounds like the type of guesses that tech bloggers have been making for months… the only question is will that “1st Half of 2009” hold up. Remember – that was never confirmed by Samsung.
While this supposed “confirmation” doesn’t really fuel any new discussion/debate, it is interesting to note that if the phone DOES hit Sprint/T-Mobile that Sprint will have 2 of the most exclusive devices on the planet… the 2nd Android Device and the Palm Pre.
Even with the negative stigma associated with Sprint, it might be enough to help turn the company around. And if it is, when will VZW/ATT respond with Android offerings of their own?
