Android lovers rejoice! It looks as if WordPress is finally launching an app for Google’s Android OS, after creating apps for both the iPhone and Blackberry (the latter which has video support! iJealous!).

WordPress has created a special blog at the subdomain Android.wordpress.org (note: they have done something similar with the iPhone and Blackberry), which may hint at a future app coming upon Google’s mobile platform.

While the company has yet to unveil what features the new Android app will contain feature wise, I assume its release is being timed with Google’s launch of Nexus One (which is rumored to be launching on January 5th).

Whether it will be worthy to compare against its iRival and Blackberry buddy, only time tell. However, its entrance upon the Android OS may help inspire Six Apart and *cough* Blogger *cough* to finally enter the world of green robots. :-)

    I wouldn’t take this as an indication that the Android app is upon us. I noted the existence of the blog back in October of last year:

    It will be interesting to see how a droid/wp combo works. As for the iPhone, the app is pretty useless for full blogging.

    You have to think there’s a promo dept somehwre in the depths of whomever who feel that a presence, no matter how impractical the actual app, is needed for branding purposes.

    While watching a leaked video for the Xperia “Rachael” device back in November, I noticed there was a WordPress App in the device’s app drawer… Could be a placeholder, or it could be an early beta – but either way the existence of android.wordpress.org could signal good things to come…
