Google Employees started tweeting from a new “Google Phone”. Rumors were already around and now its confirmed. Google Employees all over the world have already got it form Google for testing purposes.
Google confirmed this news too. The best part of it is that this mobile phone would be branded and unlocked by Google and sold all over. This could be the turning point.
When the internet giant which nearly rules the internet comes to the mobile market you can hope for some tough competition to the existing brands!
We recently came up with the concept of a mobile lab, which is a device that combines innovative hardware from a partner with software that runs on Android to experiment with new mobile features and capabilities, and we shared this device with Google employees across the globe. This means they get to test out a new technology and help improve it.
Well, they aren’t ready to share info about the phone officially, but who cares we still got it. It is rumoured to be named “Nexus one” and I really don’t know what that means.
The OS is obviously Android 2.1 and hardware, as I said in the title, is made by HTC (I wonder, didn’t they get any other better company? Just Kidding.)
It’s damn fast as it’s got a “SnapDragon Chip” and graphics seem to be too good on a OLED touchscreen. It’s got a onscreen keyboard! (iPhone, sigh.)
One tweets from a Google employee says, “an iPhone on beautifying steroids”
Maybe this one’s a sexier version of iPhone or something. This Cellphone will be sold online by Google and as i said it’s unlocked, so you will need to buy a carrier separately (This was happening in India since years, but finally Google also does it!)
It’s got a Voice to text feature so no more typing tweets or SMS but speaking it out and getting it down on your phone. I’ll be waiting for this one though it’s been said the phone would be out on mass production in January 2010. Pricing is not fixed but is estimated to be around $100-$200.
