From the Financial Times's Technology category article:

"The Apple iPhone, which has been setting the bar in touch-screen smartphones, could soon be overtaken by an army of Google-powered handsets.

Android-based phones – handsets that use the open source Google mobile operating system – are on the march as non-iPhone carriers look for a rival to Apple’s device.

Since its introduction a year ago on one device with one carrier, Android has come a long way. It is used on 12 handsets with 32 carriers in 26 countries.

They will be joined by HTC of Taiwan, Motorola and Samsung, which are rushing out models in the US before the end of the year as Sprint and Verizon Wireless join T-Mobile as Android supporters.
