AT&T; and Android a possibility
AT&T has plans to sell cell phones based on Android with the assurance from Google that it won't be forced to offer all Google Apps.
AT&T Mobility President and CEO Ralph de la Vega met with Google for an in-depth briefing on Android, he said, speaking during a press lunch at the CTIA Wireless conference in Las Vegas. Google assured AT&T that the operator would be able to customize Android phones to include any applications, he said. "That's attractive to us. We were concerned that maybe the focus was just on Google apps," de la Vega said.
"If it's good for customers we'll offer it like any other OS," he said. "It is something we'd want in our portfolio."
