According to Google/Android’s Andy Rubin, the Internet search giant hopes to see p to 20 new Android-powered handsets make their debut this year, with 8 to 9 manufacturers jumping aboard the bandwagon. This gives an average of 2 handsets or so per manufacturer. As for folks living Stateside, it might not be that numerous since carriers have a preference for custom Android builds that will take more time than usual to complete. What do you think of the whole shebang – will 2009 be when Android dominates, or will it require at least one more year in incubation?
