The company had hoped to bring out Android this summer but that now looks increasingly unlikely.
The delays are being blamed on the multitude of mobile phone companies across the world trying to work out how to adapt their devices to Google’s newly invented Android platform – the operating system they invented to allow phone users to access the web and play media files. This process is apparently taking longer than Google had thought.
Meanwhile, as these delays continue, Apple has brought out their new 3G iPhone and Skype has their phones out. So when Google finally brings Android out, they will be entering a very crowded and competitive marketplace. Will the Google name be enough to prevail over their rivals?
