The Wall Street Journal reports that T-Mobile will start selling the very first Android-powered smartphone in late October. (That is, of course, provided the world doesn’t descend into anarchy by then.) The paper cites “people familiar with the matter,” which is much better than citing “eh, just a feelin’ we have.”
Look for some sort of official announcement from T-Mobile on September 23.
Once again, the first Android phone will be the HTC Dream, and HTC is expected to ship between 600,000 and 700,000 of the smartphones.
But will Android be a big bust? That’s the question to ask now.
