ARM preparing Android-based phone

By Justin Mann on February 8, 2008, 7:51 PM
Google's Android platform has been talked about for a long while but no products have come to market based upon it yet. That is soon about to change with ARM prepared to introduce a prototype phone that will use Android as its base. What makes this particularly interesting is that ARM is not a member of the group that promotes Android, meaning they obviously found some worth of their own accord in using it.

Android was received with mixed reactions at launch. Microsoft, for instance, poked fun at Google, asserting they didn't know what they were getting into. While still in the prototype stages, perhaps this phone will be able to show the world what Android is capable of (or not).
