Orange To Launch 6 Android Phones This Year ?

Orange France is reportedly lining up to deliver 6 Android Phones in 2009. Yeah, we're stunned too. SIX! One of the six is already on Orange: the HTC Dream (aka T-Mobile G1). Another of the devices we already know about: the HTC Hero which was leaked with the rest of HTC's 2009 product line. To us, the Hero looks like the true successor to the Dream with the same form factor and lovely chin.

But what's truly crazy is that the rest of the Android devices will be coming from the other bigwigs: Motorola, Samsung, LG, and Sony Ericsson. So one device from each of these (currently silent) companies may 'easily' bring the Android Device count to 6.

Orange also confirmed that the Cupcake update will arrive in late April with another major update arriving in May.

Though we'd love for this to happen, we just don't see it in the cards. Maybe that's our cynicism speaking since we still only have ONE Android Device but six in one year seems just a bit outrageous. What do you guys think?
