Today Kyocera Wireless announced that it is working on a new Android powered smartphone. It is going to develop the phone in conjunction with Wind River, a company that will supply middleware and other support, including user interface integration, for the phone. Wind River’s systems are not expected to be available until mid 2009, so it seems safe to say that the Kyocera phone won’t be out until after that time.

This news is tied into Wind River’s announcement that it is offering a commercial Android system. Wind River joined the Open Handset Alliance back in November of 2007.
