I want to believe Asustek Computer chairman Jonney Shih when he says his company's Android phone will arrive "this year," because the more people use Android handsets, the more hardware options we'll have, the better the software gets, the more vibrant the App Market will become. Plus, I crave balance: the Garmin-Asus Nuvifone G60 was a barely-mitigated disappointment, so a solid Google piece is well overdue. But when it comes to Asus phones, release dates should be taken as tentative until the device is literally in your hands. [Digitimes via Slashgear]
