Huawei to begin selling Android phones Huwaei Technologies of China has announced that they will be releasing 2 or 3 handsets based on Google's Android operating system in 2009 with more slated for 2010.
Edward Chen, head of Huawei's devices unit, added that the company was interesting in releasing phones using Symbian software as well as from Linux foundation LiMo.

The Symbian operating system, created by lead handset manufacturer Nokia, is the top platform used in current mobile devices but it continues to lose ground to software platforms used by Apple and RIM, the maker of the Blackberry smartphone.

Huawei, unknown in the United States due to the fact that it sells phone to telecoms who then re-brand them, said it hopes to sell 40 million phones in 2009, compared to 33 million in 2008.
