Gphone rumours continue
September 20, 2007
More rumours today about the possibility of Google launching a phone in the near future.
According to sources at Taiwan handset makers, Google will definitely launch its own-brand handset but has yet to finalize the handset’s specifications, OS, production contractor and operating partners.
It seems Google can’t make their mind up about whether to go EDGE or 3G. Texas Instruments handset chipsets will find their way into the Google phone should the company decide to roll out an EDGE-compliant handset, but Qualcomm could turn out to be the winner if Google decides to bet on a 3G model, the sources noted.
HTC is still earmarked as probable manufacturer of the Gphone. And there are still rumours that Google may try to launch with it’s own operating system to compete with Windows Mobile and Symbian.
