AT&T Delays or Cancels First Android Phone?

AT&T Inc. was scheduled to launch its first Android-based mobile device in the third quarter, but manufacturer HTC reportedly says the launch will be delayed or cancelled.

Citing industry sources, Taiwan industry wire DigiTimes reports that HTC is having trouble customizing the device for the AT&T network. The model, the HTC Lancaster, has not yet been validated by the carrier.

If only delayed, it will mean that AT&T will likely miss the holiday sales season, resulting in a missed opportunity. Particularly since multiple Android devices are due in the coming months.

For now, T-Mobile USA remains the only domestic operator to offer Android-based phones (myTouch and the G1), though rumor has it Verizon Wireless will soon launch an Android device from Motorola Inc..
