Android phones late next year at the earliest

Android_robot_smallT-Mobile has shown without a doubt how excited the market is getting over Android with the buzz generated from their press event announcing the G1 phone.  Other handset makers have noted the interest too but a couple of the biggest ones are going to be late to the party it seems.  Samsung and LG, two of the OEMs to jump on the touch phone craze early, are not expected to be producing Android phones until Q3 of 2009 at the earliest.  This would indicate they are either just getting started on the process or are having trouble with carriers to get with their programs, something Mirae Asset Securities believes.  It could be a long dry spell for Android announcements if this is true.
