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.

And 18 of 20 predictions in real life fails to come true. Serious, its already near the middle of 2009 and there’s only 6 phones that comes with Android preinstalled released so far, none of them a market success.
