The first mobile phone to be based on the Google Android open source software is due to be unveiled today. It is expected to be available for purchase in October via T-Mobile for around $200 (or £107). These phones should be direct competitors with the Apple iPhone:

"The idea behind Android is to do for phone software what the open source Linux software has done for PCs. Developers of phone software can get at most of the core elements of the Android software to help them write better applications.

However, in launching Android, Google faces stiff competition from established players such as Nokia with its Symbian software and Microsoft with its Mobile operating system. More recently Apple has been gaining customers with its much hyped iPhone. "
