LG and T-Mobile to bring the Android heat in 2010 and beyond?

Don’t you love a classic rumor fresh from the mill? I know I do. I generally don’t like to get people too excited if there is little case for such emotion, but I’m sure T-Mobile customers and Android lovers won’t mind. LG hasn’t really had much of an impact here in the states as they have in other countries, say their home turf back in Seoul. Even then, just because you’re the favored incumbent doesn’t mean it’s a set and done deal. Telling signs of a cooling period for LG hardware can been seen when looking at the 2%+ dip their market share is currently experiencing. But there’s hope. As is common with any rumor, small grains of salt need to be accounted for. However, it doesn’t hurt to get ahead of the game in case it does turn out to be true. The truth?

According to Telecoms Korea T-Mo exec’s have been spending a lot of time “sight seeing” in their neck of the woods. Translation: T-Mobile and LG could be teaming up to release several Android handsets next year and beyond that would push the ailing South Korean handset makers U.S. presence more towards the front and center. I certainly wouldn’t mind. Looking at past LG handsets from abroad shows a company that can design and put together some pretty slick looking hardware. The software is just ok. Slapping Android inside is a good measure, even considering that they don’t skin the UI with their own personal tastes. I’m all for some LG/Android love. And so I ask, would you by into it?
