Forget iPhone, the Gphone is here !!

Last June APPLE(one of my DREAM companies) has created waves in the USA by releasing its most awaited gadget---- iPhone! iPhone enthusiasts were literally fighting for the iPhone in market ! & the world just kept staring at USA with jealousy(coz iPhone was not released all over the world)!

After 6months.... NOVEMBER 2007
Google(another DREAM company!)... the nearly $13.5 billion search engine major has officially announced its product--- the GPhone. It is expected to launch this Gphone by mid 2008 in collaboration with Taiwan major HTC, a mobile manufacturing company specialized in making smart phones and PDAs.
The good news is, Google has started talks with service providers in India for an exclusive launch on one of their networks. Talks are believed to be taking place with Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Essar, respectively India's first and third largest mobile telephony operators, and state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam.

Simultaneous launch across the US and Europe is expected, and announcements would be sent to media firms in India and other parts of the world. US regulatory approval, which is expected soon, is the only hurdle that Google is waiting to cross. Google plans to invest $7-8 billion for its global telephony foray!!

Gphone is likely to be a touch screen. The most attractive features should be access to GOOGLE EARTH & GTALK !!

Few sample pics of Gphone for you are here... NJOY !!

NOTE: The images above are just prototypes. Those are the existing HTC models & need not be original models of Gphone !!
