Two Google phones in development?

Two Google phones coming?

The concept of a Google-developed phone, generally dismissed once the company revealed its Android platform, may in fact be very real, according to tech columnist Robert Cringley. The writer cites an unidentified source, who says that two so-called "gPhones" are being created with help by Samsung. Both should feature Wi-Fi, with the first expected to ship in September, and the second coming sometime after Christmas.

The first is said to be a high-end phone, somewhat resembling the BlackBerry Pearl but with a flip-up screen. No hardware details have been mentioned for the second unit, but its price will allegedly fall under $100, in a bid to attract the more mainstream cellphone buyer. Talks are also said to be underway with not one but two carriers, T-Mobile and Verizon, suggesting that both GSM and CDMA models may exist. No further details are available. [via PBS]

    ummm....

    The least you guys can do is update that fake or obsolete image with one with an Android interface since it's 100% guaranteed that a Google phone would be running Android. Create a new fake/concept image is you must.

    oh for crying out loud

    Yeah, great, smash that last bit of credibility you may have left, guys.

    Quoting Robert Cringely (misspelling intended) without adding "THIS GUY EVEN TALKS s*** WHEN HE SNEEZES" should be a crime punishable by law.
