A Google Phone?

Source — New York Times (www.nytimes.com)

Apparently Google will be competing with Apple before you know it. I, like most of you, had thought they would compete with something like an operating system (rumors of a google-made distribution of linux called “Goobuntu” once floated around the internet) before a phone. However, the New York Times have educated us with information about a possible Google phone.

“The biggest growth areas are clearly going to be in the mobile space,” Eric E. Schmidt, chief executive of Google, said when asked about new opportunities at a conference here this week. In case his point wasn’t clear, Mr. Schmidt drove it home: “Mobile, mobile, mobile.”

The new offerings from the search companies are just the beginning. Search services that pinpoint a phone’s location using the Global Positioning System or that accept voice commands are coming out of the labs. Google has gone so far as to build a prototype phone with its own software inside, according to one person who has seen it.

Now, as “positive” as that sounds, I would still call this a rumor. At least until we see this prototype.

I will post more on this if there is more information leaked (or if an announcement is made? :D) to the public.

    I don’t think they’ll do as well as Apple but they’re going to do a hell of a lot better than what Microsoft would do. And Yahoo, for that matter.
