Bloomberg reports that AT&T is "analyzing the situation" and may use Google's Android mobile platform in future phones according to an interview with Ralph de la Vega, chief executive officer of the wireless unit.
The Android platform was announced on November 5th, 2007 and promises to offer an open software platform for manufacturers to build mobile phones. Only the development kit has been released, and commercial phones are not expected to reach the market until late 2008.
It's unlikely that AT&T's involvement with Android will have any affect on their partnership with Apple for the exclusive distribution of iPhones.
