The GPhone commeth?

August 24, 2007

I’m really not sure of the validity of this but thought I’d post anyway as it’s bound to be a hot topic and generate some buzz over the next couple of weeks…

Rediff News, a well respected source of technology news and views from India, has a story stating that Google Inc. (GOOG) will be launching the GPhone in two weeks. Apparently talks are underway with carriers in India to get an exclusive launch on one of their networks and it should be launching simultaneously in the US and Europe.

It’s said that any GPhone that does launch will be 3G compatible and have GPS built in for use with Google Maps. I’d also expect to see GMail integration and IM of some sort.

Google refused to comment. Obviously they will be launching a phone in the future either alone or with a partner, but is it this close to launch? I’m not so sure!
