Kyocera jumps on Android bandwagon

Japanese electronics manufacturer Kyocera is the latest vendor to sign up to Google’s mobile device platform, Android.

On Tuesday, the vendor revealed it was planning a portfolio of CDMA-based Android devices, tapping software company Wind River Systems to help with the integration of the Open Handset Alliance’s (OHA) platform.

Wind River will provide software systems integration services, including middleware and user interface integration, optimisation of Android, and custom integration for technologies from other OHA members and third party developers.

The first mobile device to use Android goes on sale in the US today. The G1, made by HTC, is available on T-Mobile USA’s network for $179 with a two year voice and data agreement.

This week, the US GSM operator has been expanding its 3G network ahead of the launch of the much hyped Google phone.
