This little nugget from DigiTimes doesn’t seem to be based on pure rumor and speculation – for once. DigiTimes is quoting Tatung’s chairman, Weishan Lin, as saying that his company is developing an Android powered handset. Of course what DigiTimes piece would be complate without a large does of unattributed random speculation? Fear not, because it is also reporting that Tatung InfoComm is the likely receiving of Tatung’s Android device. Tatung InfoComm is one of Taiwan’s WiMAX license recipients.
DigiTimes is quoting “market sources” that tell it that it is likely that Taiwan’s Chunghwa Telecom will offer HTC’s second Android based phone to its customers in the second quarter of this year. For most of us, that device seems likely to be the HTC Sapphire that we’ve spotted on the net a few times. We expect to see the device officially announced in the middle of this month at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona, Spain.
