We reported last week about the rumors of Google Android making its way into the market through the HTC’s phone supposedly called as Dream. Well, the dream might finally come true. The Android has been waiting for Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) certification and finally, it has received it.
T-Mobile is expected to be the first network operator to launch Google’s O.S. through Dream.
Google launched a new 0.9 beta version of Android on August 18 and the mobile OS platform is expected to be released officially in September or October.
Since the time of Androids announcement in November, 2007, developers who came forward to partner with Google released many an apps for the OS. Now with certain changes in the apps that created problems for the Android run phones, the OS will sport the basic applications like alarm clock, calculator, camera support, music player, image gallery. The phones running on the Android will also have SMS/MMS features.
However, one thing it won’t have and is bound to disappoint you is that OS will not support Bluetooth for security reasons. Also discarded by Google for security reasons is Google’s very own Gtalk chat application.
The smartphones will sport a new home screen, new interface and tools like preview of XML layouts in graphical format for handsets with Eclipse software. The final version of Android is expected to be named Android 1.0.
Both HTC and Google have still not confirmed that the phone will run the linux-based Android mobile operating system.
