Google's Android phone to capture 4 percent of market

The hype keeps getting hotter.

Just days ahead of T-Mobile USA's launch of the HTC Dream--the first phone that will run on Google's Android mobile software--a new study has predicted the phone will capture 4 percent of the smartphone market in the United States during the fourth quarter of 2008.

The study, by Strategy Analytics, said it expected T-Mobile to sell 400,000 Android-based units in the fourth quarter, and said the phone was coming into a crowded marketplace, already filled with Apple's iPhone 3G and Research In Motion's BlackBerry devices. 

The Sept. 23 launch of the Dream is going to be one of the most highly anticipated events in the wireless world this fall, and Google already has high expectations for its success.
