Wall Street Journal reports that the first Android Powered Mobile phone brought out by T-Mobile is going for $199. Its appearently in direct competition with Apple’s iPhone interms of contract.

T-Mobile will be announcing officially on 23rd September.

Whats really to point out here is if the device has been subsidized by carrier?

HTC, the Taiwanese device manufacturer, will set the price tag at its release in Gulf, Asia. An iPhone in India 8GB costs 31,000 RS. It is incredibly overpriced. Vodafone and Airtel, carriers, probably wanted to sweep the creamy layer first  followed by real market value price cuts. Price cuts arent announced yet, but we should see some change in Q1 2009.

SPECULATION:

Android would enter India as well as Gulf countries as a GSM mobile device, unlocked! ( this is just speculation by me based on market trends here)

Android Phones should be less expensive than Windows Mobile Devices and Symbian due to the very nature of open free software. How big will be the difference? We should know when other OHA members release their tigers!
