patiently waiting for more Android

T-mobile quietly hit the 1 million sold mark on its flagship HTC G1 this week. This means 1 million people are currently experiencing the google Android software on their phones. But if your like me your wondering where are the "other" Android phones companies keep promising? Samsung, Motorola, LG, and HTC all say they having Android phones coming soon. Well six months after the birth of Android we still have just the G1. The HTC Magic was introduced at Mobile World Congress this year which will be the second Android phone released. Its currently only available in the UK starting May 5, though a soon US launch is rumored. More exciting to me is the fact that Android is currently being tested on sub notebooks. I would love to get my hands on a 8-10 inch android sub notebook for taking notes at school and around the house web browsing. Due to my hatred for microsoft windows operating system I refuse to purchase a PC. If an Android sub notebook or a under $1,000 apple sub notebook hits the market I'm ready to spend money. But once again we are still hit the "coming soon" title when companies are asked about these Android products. I know some companies are letting t-mobile be the first out the gate in fear that Andriod might flop and bow to the Iphone, but with over 1,000,000 units sold and the HTC Magic rumored to be on its way to the US Android is off to a good start. So when will we see a flood of Android products hit the market? 2009? 2010? 2011? leave your answer in the comments

  1. I'm still waiting for RIM to release the O/S update for my BB Storm.... I'm getting impatient.. Verizon is becoming like my "ex" bf, I'm about ready to "terminate our relationship". When I'm ready for my 1st MAC Book, I will expect you to walk me through the process.
