Update: Android phones are not delayed, says Samsung Earlier this week, rumors flared that Samsung's upcoming Android-based phone was delayed, but the company has fired back today saying that they never planned to release the phone at the upcoming Mobile World Congress, and that the phone is on track for the company's internal release date.
"Somebody decided that we had said we were going to show Android here and then said we weren't. We never said we were going to show Android, and we were never planning to. There's no delay, and we're on track to launch later this year as expected," added Samsung's Kim Titus.

There is not much known about the actual device but rumor has it the Android-based phone will be sold in the US through T-Mobile and Sprint Nextel, and would be similar to their popular Instinct handset.
