In November the rumor of a Google Phone appeared on TechCrunch. Now the Google Phone is actually real and has been handed out to select Google employees for testing.
Google confirms on one of their blogs that an Android phone built by a partner was distributed to select Google employees for testing.
Google says this is a new concept of a mobile lab where the company tests out new features and capabilities.
It is still not official that Google will actually sell this phone on the market, but TechCrunch says Google will sell the Google phone unlocked. Further they claim that it would support GSM based networks and run Android 2.1.
The Google Phone is also supposed to have a high-resolution OLED touchscreen (the one I want for the iPhone 4G, I suppose) and is supposed to be fast.
We'll see how that plays out. I still have my doubts that Google will offer a mainstream Android Phone. The Google Phone could also just be a developer device. If the Google Phone is somewhat affordable unlocked though, the smartphone business will change dramatically.
