Google's Android-enabled Phone, under development by the Open Handset Alliance, is scheduled for release in the second half of the year.

Andy Rubin, Android's lead developer, gave the crowd at the I/O conference hope that the day will come when carriers allow people to install the software.

"Why wouldn't the carrier want to allow any application to be put on a cell phone?" said Rubin. "So far they've not had a platform robust enough to give them a feeling of security. The platforms today, a lot of them are 20 years old. Now, here we are in the Internet generation, when you build a platform from a clean state you have a chance to think about those things, think about what's going to give the industry, whether an OEM or a carrier, a safety net should malware be produced for these handsets. It's a platform that will enable the carriers to do more innovative things with their services."
