NTT DoCoMo, Japan's largest mobile operator and a member of the Open Handset Alliance has confirmed that they'll be releasing a Android Device by September 2009. When contacted regarding their Android plans, NTT DoCoMo responded [via Phandroid]:
Thank you for your inquiry. We aim to launch the Android based phone in the first half of the fiscal year 2009.(Apr.-Sep in 2009). That’s all we could comment at this time. Best Regards, NTT DOCOMO
Here's to hoping that we'll see this Android device release closer to April. Anybody in Japan excited for this?
