Three confirm Android handsets, no WinMo love tho

Three confirm Android handsets, no WinMo love tho UK network “3” have some good and bad news this morning. In a blog post yesterday they have admitted that their range of handsets needs to increase..

“We’ve come in for a lot of flack in the past (and on this blog!) for our handset range to date, but do believe us when we say we’re working on growing our offering – it just can’t happen overnight.”

There’s confirmation that the Windows-powered HTC HD2 isn’t going to appear on the network as..

“We feel that the Hero and Desire are more accessible handsets for our customers”.

There’s is however better news for Android fans, with the HTC Desire, Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 and Samsung Galaxy Portal all coming soon. On the Desire they state that..

“It’s one of the most exciting handsets of the year and we’re over the moon to be ranging it. It’ll launch on 3 mid/late April. We won’t be the first to market but we won’t be as late as we have been with other big phones in the past. Our pricing will be competitive.”

The Samsung Galaxy Portal will “be in stores in time for the weekend” and the Sony Ericsson X10 will be “early April”.

We’re seeing more and more networks carrying blogs and it’s refreshing to see these large companies blogging and Tweeting with a more personal feel.
