There is no spoon, erm, Google Phone

Really, there isn’t. Despite what a lot of people seem to have been hoping, it doesn’t seem like Google has any plans to make one either on the long term.

According to Valleywag, the highest guys at Google even denied it, to quote them:

I overheard a rep from Foxconn, the Taiwanese electronics manufacturer, chatting up a vice president at Google. Now, I know this particular executive is utterly guileless; she wouldn’t lie. And when the Foxconn rep tried to pitch her on getting a contract to make the Googlephone, she replied, flat-out, “We’re not making a Googlephone.”

I guess we’ll just have to live with the iPhone for now… Too bad I guess, some more competition in the field of ‘internet-capable mobile phones’ wouldn’t hurt I suppose, right now Apple seems to be pretty much alone there; the user experiences of Nokia and the Blackberries don’t even some to come close…

    That stinks. I don’t see why not, I’m fairly certain that Google would sell out of phones the first day.

    what about the htc touch, granted it has very little internal memory but at least its not a heat sensitive touch screen which becomes useless in the winter. kinda sucks when you live in the north east.
