  • Nexus One, The Google Phone, Captured In The Wild (Pictures)

    Apparently, Googlers aren’t supposed to be tweeting the details of the Google Phone, but they have no problem tweeting about how awesome it is. And they also apparently have no problem showing it off. And not surprisingly, pictures of the device are starting to hit the web. Without further ado, this is it. Cory O’Brien, a San Francisco-based blogger, got his hands on one tonight… Read More

  • The Google Phone identifies as an early replicant

    The Gruber brings us this bit of news: the new GPhone identifies as Nexus One in browsing logs. Five points to anyone who can remember what the Nexus models were? Read More

  • The Google Phone: This changes everything (mostly)

    We don’t have much information on the Google Phone just yet. In fact, it sounds more like a party favor than anything else. However, if and when Google starts selling this thing, prepare for some of the strangest – and coolest – times in mobile we’ve ever experienced. What do we know? It’s an HTC phone – probably the Passion, a distant cousin to the… Read More

  • gPhone in our futures?

    TC is reporting: 2007 was the year of speculation of a Google Phone, or Gphone. Handset manufacturer HTC was the center of attention around most of the rumors. But Google eventually squashed those rumors by announcing the Open Handset Alliance and Android. Instead of building an iPhone like device and service combined, they’d be backing an open source mobile operating system that… Read More

  • GPhone delayed till 2009

    *gasp* TheStreet has word from a source familiar with the situation that the GPhone won’t be released in time for the holiday shopping season after all. That’s really all the source had to say about the matter. Oh well. There are other Android handsets set to launch this year, which I’m assuming won’t be affected by this news/rumor and I’m looking forward to… Read More

  • Two gPhones coming for post-Christmas?

    RXC is positing that there will be two gPhones coming after Christmas, both made by Samsung (!!). He describes the phones as something like the Pearl with a flip up screen. I’m calling bullshit, as does 9to5mac, but it’s not too hard to make a “gPhone” — just rebadge something in the OEM’s pipeline — but I just can’t see Google selling… Read More

  • Our first Android phone hands-on

    Here, in all its madcap glory, is the GPhone: Android running on test hardware that looks compelling but not quite ready for prime time. The interface was quite snappy — it was almost exactly as swift as the emulated software on any PC — and it looks good and tight with lots of nice transitions et al. Let’s say this is the emulator made flesh and leave it at that — the… Read More

  • Android in February? Prepare grains of salt now

    Google has booked not one, but two (!!!!!) booths at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this February. That means that it’ll probably be showing off Android phones then, right? Maybe. Or maybe not. APC Magazine thinks that we’ll see some Android headsets on February 11th, but let’s all keep that in our back pockets until then. Read More

  • GPhone To Debut In February?

    Google powered phones could be debuted as soon as February, according to speculation by APC. It’s an interesting exercise in drawing the dots together to get to a completely unsupported conclusion, but there are some interesting facts APC has reported that are worth taking a look at: You can bet that if Google’s handset partners lift the covers on their Android phones during the… Read More

    Gizmodo has got their hands on a photograph (pic right) of a prototype phone running Google’s Android Open Mobile operating system. According to the report, the phone itself looks like it may have been manufactured by HTC. What it means: The OS obviously works already, and this looks like a closed testing round to iron out the bugs, so there’s a good chance that Android is… Read More

  • Scoble not too hot on Android

    Not too long after Google’s announcement of $10-million worth of prize money to Android application developers, Robert Scoble has weighed in with a few reasons (seven) why he’s not too keen on the whole deal. He cites the prize money as the very reason that the developer API is "uninspired" comparing the fact that iPhone developers don’t even have an SDK and… Read More

  • Old Man Dvorak says 'the Google phone is doomed'

    Every industry needs an old, crotchety curmudgeon. We have the always-entertaining John C. Dvorak who’s lately seemed to be slowly slipping into senility. That’s okay, though. That’s okay.
