The Good Google giveth and taketh away………..

Well , today I saw over at Engadget that the rumored ( I will have to get used to using that word in my posts whenever it is about a new tech gadget) Google Phone seems to be a pipe dream. So, we get a nice new desktop with pretty themes, but probably lose a potentially great phone. I see why they may nix the idea at Google, it would not be a great idea to go out in battle with so many other phones already fighting each other for customers. It was such a  nice idea, though. I would love to see the whole world filled with Google Ideas, products. Funny that I hate Walmart and Microsoft for the same reasons, they have taken over the world.

But I don’t like them because I do not like thier business principles, practices and products.

At least in Engadget’s post about the Google phone, it was stated that Google did not come out and deny the whole idea completely.  I wonder what the next idea ( rumored or not) Google has will be?

The Google Phone in development

I was looking at my WordPress front area today and what did I spy with my little eye? An article about my, err I mean, Googles soon to be phone. The initial article I read this on was The Browser, a Fortune Blog powered by WordPress.

The article states that Engadget had posted with confirmation about the Google Phone, Engadget obtained the info from a blog in Spain, Gizmovil; who in turn cites aecomo , who in turn cites Noticias.com. (How is that for follow the lead?)

Bottom line on the phone? It is now being said to be one of 18 research ideas being worked on in the labs. I say what ever, I am willing to wait! I just hope its going to be nicer looking that what is out there now.

Will we be “Switching” to a Google phone soon?

Once in a great while I get the chance to “find” some techy news that interests me, not often but sometimes. Today was one of those times. I was just by chance reading my google reader when I saw a post on Techmeme about a Google Phone. When ever I hear anything about Google I listen, I don’t care if they came out with a Google potty, I would be the one biting. So, I go off to Techmeme to read, where I see the article listing they cited, and I go to that blog ( its follow the leader around here ) which was High Contrast. 

The article at High Contrast was a great read. Admittedly most of the severe tech info going over my head ( but I am learning!) however, the gist of it was that Google does in fact seem to have a phone coming.There is a picture as well on the blog, with a bit of intrigue to go with the story, seems that CNet picked up High Contrasts post, and reported on this and had some misinformation about who aquired the photo. *See the intrige here?*

High Contrast states that the photo was in fact really leaked to Engadget who insinuates that the photo of the Phone could be altered in some way possibly.Who knows, I recall that as with other devices in the past, the end result is  sometimes vastly different than the original concept. Anyway, I love that this post on Engaget hints at having a “tipster” , the tech market is so spy like to me. To be clear, Engadget is leaving this whole story to the future, waiting to see if it is as they say, fantasy or reality.

If you really want to know what the scoop is, don’t listen to me alone, go off and read all these posts I have linked to above and then keep your ear to the tech blogs, we will find out soon I am sure.

The Google phone is named ( in the articles anyway) Switch.  And if Google does in fact produce a phone I plan on being one of the first customers they have, they have earned my trust.
