The Open Handset Alliance (also known as "friends of Google Android") announced that it has 14 new members. The latest members are AKM Semiconductor Inc., ARM, ASUSTek Computer Inc., Atheros Communications, Borqs, Ericsson, Garmin International Inc., Huawei Technologies, Omron Software Co. Ltd, Softbank Mobile Corporation, Sony Ericsson, Teleca AB, Toshiba Corporation and Vodafone. According to the OHA's press release:

"New members will either deploy compatible Android devices, contribute significant code to the Android Open Source Project, or support the ecosystem through products and services that will accelerate the availability of Android-based devices. With these commitments, the Open Handset Alliance will continue to drive greater and faster innovation for the benefit of mobile users and everyone in the industry."

This is great news for consumers interested in Google's Android platform, but aren't quite sold on the T-Mobile G1. I'm particularly interested to see what Asus and Sony Ericcson can do with Android. In the press release, a Sony Ericcson executive said, "Sony Ericsson can bring a wealth of experience in making consumer focused multimedia handsets with new user experience to the Alliance drawing on the successes of the Walkman and Cyber-shot sub-brands." That would frickin' rock. I love Sony's high-end Cyber-shot phones. An Android phone with Sony's style and a Cyber-shot camera would own me.
