HTC launched the first ever Android Phone – the T-Mobile G1 / HTC Dream. They’re poised to launch the second mass market Android Phone in the HTC Magic. And HTC’s CEO said just today that Android fans can expect AT LEAST 2 more Android Phones this year. I am (to say the least) excited.
The news came at the Merrill Lynch technology conference in Taipei, where Peter Chou answered a question concerning rumors that HTC would launch 5 Android phones in 2009. His reply contained, “at least 3,” but offering virtually no more information on the subject. But no more information is needed to get excited that 2009 will be an awesome year for Android. The first few months have been slow, but there are still 9 months remaining to make 2009 the year of the Droid.
I’m curious to know what form factor these other 2 devices will be. It would make sense if one was a BlackBerry-ish device to diversify the product offering and I know that a lot of people are still clamoring for a supercharged, Touch HD-like device with a killer camera, and specs out the wazoo. But what do you think we’ll see from HTC in regards to form factor and specs for the upcoming Androids?
