We are going to see a lot more Android based phones in the coming days as more and more Companies are joining the OHA or the Open Handset Alliance

The latest news its that 14 members have joined including Sony Ericsson , Vodafone and Toshibha

The statement says “New members will either deploy compatible Android devices, contribute significant code to the Android Open Source Project, or support the ecosystem through products and services that will accelerate the availability of Android-based devices.”

For instance it does not necessarilly mean SE will work on a Android device but their options are open

Palm and Motorola are doing really bad with handset sales .. should they just adopt Android and cut costs ?
