Android mobile phones could be about to become accessible to a massive mainstream audience under Samsung’s plans for a series of cut-price Android phones to market imminently.
Samsung’s intentions to release a range of affordable Android mobiles were revealed at a press conference for a new eco-friendly handset.
According to Tech Radar, Casey Ryan, product manager for the phone who was speaking at the event, said that the mobiles would be priced at well under $100 (£60) and are set to become available from next year.
The handsets have the potential to bring Google’s operating system, which has hitherto been restricted to costly models such as the HTC Magic, the T-Mobile G1 and the HTC Hero, to a wider market and massively boost the user base for Android.
Android mobiles are also on the way later this year from a number of mobile phone industry big hitters, including Sony Ericsson and LG, as well as smaller players such as Acer and BenQ.
