Engadget has a ton of pics, but - oddly - no video, of aprototype handset running the Android OS at Texas Instruments' booth at MWC in Spain. The handset is powered by a 500 MHz OMAP 3430 processor, which is getting towards the upper end of the current mobile chipset spectrum, and Engadget's Sean Cooper said the interface is "dead quick and rather glorious."
Video, Sean! Where's the video?
Apparently several other vendors, including NEC/Wind River, have Android prototypes on display in Spain this week, but none are quite fully functional. Texas Instruments' phone had no Internet connecitivity, for example, while the NEC/WR unit was online but lacked any way to direct input into the browser.
In any case, whatever hardware makers may or may not have lying in wait already, we're definitely not seeing any sort of finished Android devices just yet. The newest version of the SDK (Developers' Kit) features touchscreen support, and we're certainly sure to see HSDPA support when Android phones make it to consumers' hands at long last.
UPDATE: CrunchGear's got the goods. Video! Honestly, it's not all that exciting (45 seconds or show of shaky vid taken from not quite close-up), but it is a glimpse of Android actually running on a phone. Or, as John Biggs puts it, "Let's just say this is the emulator made flesh and leave it at that."
