Google Google predicts that some 18 to 20 phones, from eight to nine manufacturers, will come with Android OS installed on them by the end of the year. Although Android is open-source, manufacturers will be able to sign distribution deals with Google in order to pre-install their phones with more options such as Google Apps. The Android OS is widely predicted to also make the jump to mini-notebooks soon.

The G1 is also about to be released in Canada on the Rogers network. I believe the call it the Revolution or something.

Rogers will be releasing both the HTC Dream (the G1) and the HTC Magic this week. They won't be using the google-branded Android, they're using HTC's version. Main reason is to include ActiveSync for email, not sure what other differences there will be.
