Global Equities Research analyst Trip Chowdhry is confident that Motorola "may announce" two new Android phones, one on AT&T, the second on Verizon.

Wow, now Android phone will be able to drop calls in major cities too!

This years CES show appears to be big for Android so I'm going to watching closely.

Wonder how Apple, still tethered to AT&T, will feel about this turn of events if the rumors are true?

I predict Apple will move to end its exclusivity deal with AT&T in 2010. Oh wait, I think they are already expected to do that. All the more reason for AT&T to court other choices.

You were right:

Not just one android device but up to five.

Is there any indication of whether Apple is mad?

Hard to say at this point because I learned something new about Android vs. iPhone.

Apple managed to get AT&T to share revenue with the iPhone, a pretty good feat.

Google is not only willing to give the OS away so providers can do whatever they want to the phone, but Google is willing to share ADVERTISING revenue with the phone companies and even give incentives to sell the phone which helps the cell companies subsidizing the phones.

So when the AT&T contract is up and Apple starts looking for similar revenue sharing from other cell companies they'll probably be mad then because Google/Android has seriously tainted the water.

Google is all about the ad revenue and Apple just bought some mobile ad company so I think Apple knows what's in store moving forward.
