BGR is trying to put two and two together and predicting (with no sources, leaks, or tips) that the T-Mobile G2 is going to show up at CTIA. For those keeping score: the T-Mobile G2 is the HTC Magic and CTIA is a pretty huge mobile industry convention. What makes this interesting is that CTIA is right around the corner (April 1-3) and well, it does make a little sense.
Consider the fact that Android needs to become more relevant to be considered a true contender in the mobile industry. After the relatively quiet MWC we had to go through, the WORST thing would be to have another quiet convention where everyone is left wondering where Android is.
So what's better than making an impact at one of the biggest shows of the year? CTIA fits the bill perfectly. We're predicting big things for Android at CTIA because if Android is quiet again at CTIA, man we're going to be in for a long year.
This watercooler talk of Android and the T-Mobile G2 would surely make April an interesting month for Android. Remember, the HTC Magic is supposed to launch in April and the much anticipated Cupcake firmware is looking to be released in April as well. Can April get any bigger with the announcement of the T-Mobile G2? Could it be a month to remember with other Android Device announcements?
We personally would hate to see another opportunity slip by with Android barely making a peep. Now that Android has been on the market for nearly 6 months, it's time to see Android begin to fulfill its promise. With the Palm Pre still on everybody's minds and the iPhone 3.0 preview looking to steal attention, Android needs to shine the light back on itself. CTIA should be their show.
What do you guys think? Are we in for another quiet convention or can we expect some BIG news on the Android front?
