Google Exec Andy Rubin Promises 18 New Android Cell Phones by the End of 2009

Will Google's 18 Android Phones Finally Trounce the iPhone?

So you were excited about the prospect of the G2, a second Android phone? Well, then how do you feel about 18 new Android phones? That's what Google exec Andy Rubin said yesterday at Google's I/O developer's conference — that around 18 Android phones should be on the market by the end of this year.

Well, yeah, Google! Not only is this the year to come out into the cell phone race with (multiple) guns blazing, it's the Summer: with a new iPhone, new BlackBerry, and the highly-anticipated Palm Pre coming out, you guys are already split in your preference of those phones. Android handsets are the slow pony in this race.

Still, however you felt about the G1, Android is a powerhouse of an operating system and I am eager to see any new offering at this point. But will it be enough to challenge the heavy hitters?

"With the way Apple keeps advancing their technology/software and the versatility of the iPhone, I doubt any phone will disrupt/steal sales. Apple is in a league of their own." is that some kind of joke??? i have the iphone 3g. it cant do half the things my old nokia from YEARS ago did. official iphone apps still can't do mms, record video, stereo bluetooth or file sharing, etc etc etc. firmware 3.0 will finally resolve some of these things and that isn't even out yet. as soon as the new android phones are out i will definitely give it a chance.
