Starting with the third quarter we’ve got two Samsung Android devices. The first is the i777 which is supposed to be the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S II. Also in the third quarter (think the next few months) is the Samsung i927 which is supposed to be a qwerty slider. The i927 was originally thought to be the Samsung Galaxy S II with a twist, similar to the Epic 4G. Now it seems that it’s an entirely separate phone.

In the fourth quarter we have a paid of Pantech Android devices. Pantech just got into the world of Android earlier this year with the Pantech Crossover. Although it was a midrange phone it had some interesting new features and is pretty sturdy. The first Pantech model, the P9060 features Android 2.3.3 “Gingerbread”, 512mb of ram and an 8mp camera. The second Pantech device also runs Gingebread with 512mb or ram and only a 3mp camera.
Motorola’s “Fuath” was rumored earlier this year as a follow up to the Atrix. It’s also been rumored that this Motorola Android device will be the only smartphone on AT&T’s 4G/LTE network this year.
We also seem to have a midrange device coming from Huawaei. As Pocketnow points out, we were also promised the Sony Xperia Play by the end of the year. Also absent on this list is a new Android device by HTC. Before you go digging to deep into that, HTC did re-affirm their faith in Google late last week and they may be holding off to let the Inspire 4G sell more units. The Inspire 4G was the 2nd best selling Android device in the 2nd quarter according to NPD.
We also seem to be missing one device by Samsung and the HTC Holiday. Absent from the list is LG. They should be releasing the LG Thrill any day now but other than that they don’t seem to have anything slated for the rest of 2011.
