Its taken a bit longer than we all might have hoped, but it seems that Android is really starting to pick up the steam it deserves. Be it Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson.. if they’re a big gun in the mobile manufacturing world (Well, outside of certain obvious exclusions), they’re probably working on an Android handset or two. The first off the bat and the most dedicated so far has been HTC – and if the latest rumors hold true, they might be looking to throw even more weight behind it.
According to the Digitimes, HTC may be looking to put the Droid onto as much as fifty percent of their handsets. Now, HTC doesn’t push’em out as fast as some other manufacturers (by the way, Samsung, we’re totally talking about you), but they still pump out a good number of’em each year. And of their lineup, almost the entirety is Windows Mobile. Digitimes also adds that HTC is aiming for around 30% of their handsets this year to be Android-based. We can think of about 5 or 6 we’re expecting to see by years end (including those that have launched already) -f it that’s 30% and HTC continues to make around as many total devices next year, we can probably expect at least 9 or 10 Droidphones from them next year. Fuzzy math? Absolutely. But we can hope, can’t we?
