Google to Officiallly Announce the GPhone?

By Deane Barker on November 5, 2007

Google enlists help for Google Phone: Will this be the first official announcement of the GPhone — an item that everyone is talking about as if Google has official acknowledged it?

Google today plans to announce the formation of an “open phone” coalition, with the goal of developing an operating system for the so-called Google Phone.

The new operating system, geared specifically for cellphones, will be used to showcase and promote Google’s ever-growing panoply of services, much like Microsoft has done for decades with its Windows operating system.

[…] The new G-system will be based on Linux, a 15-year-old computer operating system that is available free over the Internet. Google’s version will be overlaid with Java, a popular computer language.
