Google expects big things from Android in 2009

Google and many consumers and analysts had high expectations for the open source Android operating system when it launched on the T-Mobile G1 about six months ago. However, the operating system and the device got off to a shaky start and so far, there are still relatively few Android devices on the market.

Android is finally finding its footing in the market and Google predicts that this will be a big year for the operating system. T-Mobile announced this week that since the G1 launched six months ago the handset has now sold a million units. The G1 debuted in October 2008 and has had several updates to add functionality and fix bugs in the operating system.

DailyTech reported in early April 2009 that T-Mobile is planning to move more of its smartphones over to the Android OS and other reports show that T-Mobile also plans to release a home phone running the Android OS.

Android is also being eyed by some computer makers to move outside the smartphone realm and into the netbook market. HP announced in early April 2009 that it was considering using the Android operating system on netbooks. However, the computer giant also pointed out that it was considering many options and the decision had not yet been made on Androids HP future.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt said, "There are announcements happening between now and the end of the year that are quite significant from operators and new hardware partners in the Android space, which I won't preannounce except to say that they really do fulfill much of the vision that we laid out more than a year ago. On the netbook side, there are a number of people who have actually taken Android and ported it over to netbook or netbook-similar devices."
