Motorola Preps 350-strong Team of Android Developers; Android Smartphones to Come Imminently?

It seems that Motorola is all set to embrace the Google’s Android based mobile platform, in an attempt to revamp its mobile devices unit.

The sources reported that the mobile maker is assembling a team of 350 Android developers to start off the business, in order to regain some of its lost market share.

Since its RAZR series, Motorola has failed to come up with any striking model for the market, and hence the company is struggling hard to find space in the highly competing handset market.

Motorola spokesperson said in a statement, “We’re excited about the innovation possibilities on Android, and look forward to delivering great products in partnership with Google and the Open Handset alliance.”

Google’s Android fever gets a hype last week with T-Mobile’s announcement of launching first ever Android based phone G1, also tagged as HTC Dream, which is expected to be around in later part of this month.
