Google to announce mobile plans Monday?

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, on Monday, Google will reveal its rumored alliance with various handset makers and at least one carrier in the U.S. for an “open” mobile OS. According to the report, Google will be working with Sprint and T-Mobile USA. Our sister publication FierceWireless‘ polling (as of press time) suggests that Fierce readers agree with that prediction. Samsung, LG and Sony Ericsson are likely candidates for the handset partnership, but the WSJ‘s sources say that HTC is the most likely. Let’s hope it’s true–wouldn’t a Google OS on the Tilt be killer? While the announcement is likely to cause a big stir in the media, the market won’t see any commercially launched devices until the middle of next year, the report claims.
