Several Android cellphones to be shown at MWC today


Android-based cellphones are somewhere on the Mobile World Conference show floor in Barcelona. There were rumors last week of an ARM-branded Android phone being at the show, and today AFP says we can expect to see models from Marvell, Texas Instruments, Qualcomm, NEC and ST Microelectronics. While the first Android cellphones aren’t scheduled to come out until later this year, MWC, if you couldn’t already tell, is where all the cellphone players show off their goods for the coming year. (Unless you’re Apple and can debut a phone at your own conference.)

So maybe Mr. Biggs can swing by those companies’ booths to see what’s up. Personally, I want Android to succeed because I’m do for a new cellphone soon—I still use the original LG Chocolate, which is dying a slow death—and wouldn’t mind having the open sourceness of Android to fall back on. Life beyond the iPhone, then.
