Google to Launch It's Own Android Powered Smartphone By Year End
|Back in August of 2007, we reported that The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) confirmed that Google will launch a cell phone within a year. The WSJ claimed Google had developed a cell phone prototype to ultimately give away free cell phones and service to subscribers. The Google was to be bundled with advertisements from its search engine, e-mail and Web browser software applications and considered a major threat to existing carriers like Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile.|
Nothing ever came of the Google phone until today. Today TheStreet.com is reporting that Google will be launching an Android powered smartphone by the end of this year. The Google phone will be available via retailers and not via telcos. This is according to Northeast Securities analyst Ashok Kumar, who has been in contact with Google's design partners about the plan.
The Google phone would fulfill Google's goal of offering a new generation of open-standard mobile internet devices to consumer bypassing the cell phone carriers. So we shall see! Only time shall tell.
