By now, you've probably heard that Samsung revealed the Samsung Mondi and Samsung Instinct s30 during a press conference on Tuesday night, one day before the official start of CTIA 2009. At the end of the event, there was a Q&A session and one of the questions that came up was the status of Samsung's Google Android devices.

Unfortunately, the company didn't have much to say, other than what we already know. (Hey, I'm just passing along the message, so don't shoot me, OK?) Samsung said it is absolutely committed to the Open Handset Alliance but it's company procedure not to talk about any specific products until closer to launch, blah, blah, blah. Samsung did emphasize that there are no delays and that it's on track to release its Android devices during the second half of 2009.
