Google launches an online database of Android phones

If you’re in the market for an Android phone, but find the sheer number of devices, carriers, and plans overwhelming, then you’re not alone. Android has exploded, and there are more smartphones available now than ever before. So, what can you do?

Google have heard your cries, and have now launched their Google Phone Gallery, which offers a near-complete list of all the Android devices available to you. Best of all (at least for me as an Australian) is that it also covers carriers outside of the US.

The phones can be ordered alphabetically or by release date, and you can compare prices and specs between different carriers and phones.

The gallery only lists phones that have Google services installed (Market, GMail, Maps, Search), and doesn’t currently show any tablets.
