Meteor to bring Android phone to Ireland

8 Oct 2009

Although nothing has yet been officially announced by Meteor, a message from an administrator on the mobile operator’s online discussion forum states claims that Meteor will be bringing an Android handset to market this November.

“I have just been speaking to our product guys and I can confirm that we will definitely be launching an Android handset on our network in November!!!,” said an administrator named Glynn on the official Meteor discussion forum.

The message was part of a discussion thread specifically on Android, Google’s open-source operating system for smart phones.

The Meteor administrator went on to say that he could not comment on whether the Android handset in question was a HTC Hero, but an anonymous tipster told that it was in fact going to be the Hero, a slim touchscreen smart phone with a 3.2-inch TFT-LCD screen, 5-megapixel camera and trackball navigation button.
