Looking forward to new Android phones in 2009 for the U.S. market can be disappointing. We have the G1, and maybe the HTC Magic if it ever comes around here. Other than that, there’s not too much that we know about. What we can know is that Huawei, a Chinese mobile manufacturer, is making a new Android phone that will come to T-Mobile in Q3 2009.
The phone actually looks really good. The G1 is a phone that has to grow on you. Looking at it now, there’s nothing wrong with it, but when it was first introduced, it was hard to say that the G1 was actually a good looking phone. The Huawei phone looks almost iPhone-like, which would make it possibly the best looking Android phone so far. It’s hard to say how well it will actually work with Android, but it will be a new option.
Despite the depressingly low amount of Android phones at MWC last week, it looks as if there will be more off them coming this year. More options will always be a good thing. It would be nice to see more phones come out even if they aren’t as nice as the G1 whe it comes to functionality.
