Google chief says Android announcements "significant" this year

Chris Ziegler

The Android buzz meter has witnessed an epic fall from grace over the past six months as webOS, new iPhone hardware and software, and -- gasp! -- maybe even a little WinMo 6.5 / 7.0 talk have all conspired to win back real estate in the mobile gossip columns. It's hard to say what the OHA's going to need to get back in the spotlight, but one part of that puzzle clearly comes from the 1.5 build in the pipeline, and another part is... well, a big mystery. In its first-quarter earnings call, Google CEO Eric Schmidt played coy about the situation, saying only that "it looks like Android is going to have a very strong year" and that the announcements we'll see in the space will be "quite significant." As much as we're stoked to see the Magic hit shelves, we can't say that we'd chalk that up as a "quite significant" announcement, so we're hoping it only gets better from here; Samsung, you have anything to say about this?
