Dellephone Headed to AT&T

dellephoneGartner (IT) analyst Ken Dulaney says Google’s Android OS will claim 14 percent of the global smart-phone market by 2012, putting it ahead of Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone but behind Symbian, which currently runs on about half of all smart phones.

While this might seem optimistic for an OS that is found on less than two percent of all smart phones today, it’s not entirely unreasonable given the distribution deals Google (GOOG) has been lining up. Yesterday, the search giant announced a deal to bring Android-based devices to Verizon Wireless (VZ). Now comes word that Dell (DELL) is building an Android handset for AT&T (T). People briefed on the companies’ plans tell The Wall Street Journal that the device is similar to the one the PC marker has been showing off in China and is scheduled to hit the market sometime in early 2010.
