China Mobile may launch Android phone

China Mobile may become the first Asian carrier to distribute a phone based on Google's Android software, according to numerous reports.

Wired is reporting that China Mobile, which has over 410 million subscribers, may jump first at the prospect of landing an Android phone in Asia having previously sought to get an HTC-made device into the market before the end of the year. China Mobile, NTT DoCoMo and Japanese telecom KDDI are all members of the Open Handset Alliance, which has made a big push for Android.

The T-Mobile G1, which was unveiled last week, is scheduled to launch in the United States on Oct. 22, and in European markets in early 2009.
