Samsung Android in Summer
Samsung's first Android phone could be ready to launch as early as the summer if tips from within the mobile industry are accurate. DigiTimes both claims the handset will release during the period and also appears to confirm details that had slipped out earlier this week, including a design that resembles the HTC Magic and advanced 3G. Little else is mentioned, though recent leaks point to a finger-friendly capacitive touchscreen and at least a 3.2-megapixel camera.
The unnamed Samsung smartphone won't be alone in the market, as the Magic is due to ship in April and will be followed by at least two more HTC Android phones before the year is out. Motorola and Sony Ericsson are also prepping Android phones for later this year.
