The iPhone and Google Android handsets have occupied a lot of limelight recently. Microsoft isn’t phased by this, with top Execs seemingly content to watch how things pan out. Today, however, Asustek announced their intention to build a handset based on the Google Android platform following the launch of the HTC-built G1.
The Telecom is reporting that “The device will initially be released in Taiwan, with Asustek aiming for an optimistic 20% share of the Taiwanese market by the end of 2009.”
Asustek, who produce Windows Mobile handsets like the Glaxy7 and P526, expect to launch a 3G handset using Google Android in Q1 of 2009.
