The Google Phone - "iPhone on beautifying steroids"?

When rumours about Google going into the phone industry came up, the company responded by launching phone operating systems in Androids instead.


Well, the subject has cropped up again after a post by a Google employee posted on twitter “Stuck in mass traffic leaving work post last all hands of 2009. ZOMG we all had fireworks and we all got the new Google phone. Its beautiful.”

According to Insidetech,"reportedly the phone is powered by a Snapdragon processor. Developed by Qualcomm, demoed chips featured speeds of 1 GHz or faster. The latest chip, the QSD8672 featured dual cores running at 1.5 GHz with integrated HSPA+, GPS, Bluetooth, high definition video recording and playback, Wi-Fi and mobile TV technologies (MediaFLO, DVB-H and ISDB-T). It is unknown which variant of Snapdragon Google will use (the Toshiba TG01 smart phone was the first mobile phone to use the 1 GHz variant). The GPhone is also rumored to be packed with a OLED touchscreen (no keyboard) and dual mics for killing background noise."

From what we know, Google is going to give other smartphones before it a run for their dollars because it will be launched as an unlocked phone unlike others like it that opt for exclusive carriers. If Google keep being Google, I know that this will become a phenomenon like most of it's other products.

We can't wait for it to hit the market!
