Mobile World Congress is shaping up to be one heck of a show, huh? Reuters is citing "a source close to the company" in reporting that British chip company ARM will show off a prototype phone running Google's Android platform in Barcelona on Monday. While we've seen demos of Android running on PCs, and a few "Android-ready" handsets like the impressive Wiston NeWeb GW4 I saw at CES, there's yet to have been an actual handset actually running Android actually shown off in public.
So this could be pretty cool, a real look at Android in the wild. Early reports have indicated that Android is buggier than it was expected to be at this stage in the game, and there have also been complaints about Google's online development community for the mobile platform. But the Open Handset Alliance is still big news, and everyone's waiting for the first fruits of its labor. Maybe we'll see them as soon as Monday.
