T-Mobile will sell the first Google Android smartphone

T-Mobile in the US will be the first to offer mobile phones based on Google's highly anticipated Android software.

T-Mobile USA will be the first to offer a mobile phone based on Google Android software, the New York Times reported, citing people briefed on the company's plans.

The high-end phone, which will be made by the world's top smartphone maker High Tech Computer Corp, is expected to challenge Apple's iPhone as well as other smartphones that run software from Palm, Research in Motion, Microsoft and Nokia.

The phone is expected to go on sale in the US before Christmas and perhaps as early as October, the paper said.

Neither Google nor T-Mobile immediately returned calls seeking comment.

Last November Google introduced its highly anticipated Android software system for designing mobile phone devices, in a move it promised could help the cellphone industry make the internet work as smoothly on phones as it does on computers.
