Google Phone ( Rumors )


The Google Phone is called Switch

  • Google has 100 folks working on it
  • Danger founder Andy Rubin is heading the team
  • Google is using tech from two companies it bought: Skia & Reqwireles
  • Google partnered with Samsung earlier this year, and it could be a distributor/handset maker
  • Switch is a “BlackBerry-like, slick device” running Java on a C++ core with perhaps a Linux bootstrap
  • Google will sell and market the phone online, relying on the carriers for their networks only. Simeonov calls this a “dumb pipe.”
