Google, Samsung to take on iPhone?

Google touch phone?

Google and Samsung may be working on a phone that utilizes the search giant's extensive online services, according one report. Nicknamed the "Switch," the handset would be virtually dominated by a touch-screen like Apple's iPhone and would include 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. The phone will also feature a GPS receiver as part of the design to locate its exact position in Google Maps, according to Engadget. The new phone may also offer support for Google Spreadsheets or Writely, although no detailed technical info was provided with the alleged leak.

    can imagine...

    ...by the time the iPhone is actually out, there'll be a 'LOT' of other phones out there (or announced) to blur the line and take the shine off...
