Sharp is allegedly readying an Android-based handset for the local Japanese market, according to MarketWatch.
The report, originating from Nikkei, credits Sharp executive Masami Ohbatake with making the announcement, although he declined to disclose which carriers will get the device first. NTT DoCoMo is expected to be the “first in line,” however. This device may come as early as the first half of next year.
Our first and last guess for the device was always HTC Passion, the Android device which has been in talk for more than months. Built around Qualcomm’s 1 Ghz Snapdragon processor, Passion will work on Android 2.0 (eclair) release and will try to bring Android to whole new level.
But Techcrunch says, the device will be built by LG. As their sources claim Google phone will be built with help of an Korean manufacturer. Which is LG. There have been rumors that LG is also working on a Snapdragon powered handset which can come out as pure Google Branded phone.
After the huge success of Droid, it becomes apparent the Google will strike this time. This Google branded phone might come on Verizon, with which Google has already had a successful relationship in the form on Droid, which is suceessful and rolling.
According to Techcrunch, Google is planning a big advertising push around the device early next year – like January.
We have now heard that the handset will begin shipping later this month (in the UK), it is expected to cost around £286 pre-tax, however most UK carriers will probably offer the handset for free when a contract is agreed.
The handset will be pretty impressive as it features a 3.5 inch capacitive touchscreen display, a 5 megapixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.

Asked how he expects Android handsets to do in the country, Gupta said, “a lot would depend on the pricing and the applications developed. Android as a platform is expected to help handset-makers bring down cost, something that will help them here.”
