The GPhone: Facts or Fiction?

Friday, August 10, 2007


With the big hype that the iPhone made, Google has started its own project of re-creating that hype with the rumored development of their own handset: the gPhone, or the Google Phone. Here are some "rumors" that have made its way on the internet:

- The gPhone will be built on a Linux-based operating system
- Google is working on a sophisticated new Web browser for mobile phones
- Hundreds of millions have been invested for the development of the GPhone
- Google has already developed prototype phones, LG as one of its partners
- HTC Corporation (High Tech Computer) will be the ones to develop the OS

Facts or Fiction? I'm not so sure. But I'm not that excited with this gPhone. It's just that this is not Google's specialty. I have my doubts, but then again, we'll just have to wait and see. If the mobile Google is as powerful as its world wide web counterpart, then why not?
