Could it be? Is it possible? A gPhone released in as little as two weeks?

August 27, 2007

g is for Google. All you suckas out there who plunked down $5-600 clams on that over priced, over hyperbole-ed iToilet might want to get a load of this one. The rumor mills are all a buzz (as they were earlier this year). As it goes, some guys in India (having something to do with Google) have supposedly leaked that, as the title says, this phone could be unleashed onto the public in both Europe and the US with a possible release in India in as little as two weeks. I don’t know the story, but (as it goes) it is to have a Linux-powered engine with ad-supported service. How will this affect other cell phone companies that have integrated googleware? Who knows, but if this it true, their backsides might be feeling a bit sore. Ya know, I used to be warm and fuzzy about the big G, but now I’m not so sure. They are saving all of our e-mails (with Gmail), no doubt turning Google Earth into some kinda visual tracking whatever, and if this is true, will be listening in on (and recording) every conversation we ever have. I can see it now, voice recognition knows what you are saying, Google then jumps into the conversation mimicking the person you were talking to, and then tries to convince you to buy some pill to decrease the angle of your dangle. Scintillating. You can read stories about this here, here, and here. I’m sure its all over the place by now. Just search for it, gulp, on Google.
