Google working on "Switch" iPhone killer?

Google Switch Phone

Search engine developer Google may be working with Samsung on a phone that takes advantage of the former's extensive online services, according to photos submitted anonymously to Engadget. Nicknamed the "Switch," the handset would be virtually dominated by a touchscreen and would have no built-in flash memory of its own to store software; instead, the phone would connect to the Internet to merge the user's GMail, GTalk, and SMS text messaging into a single interface. A GPS receiver will also be part of the design to locate its exact position in Google Maps, the source claims. Productivity through Google Spreadsheets or Writely may also be possible. No detailed technical info was provided with the alleged leak.
