I just got an alert from the Wall Street Journal:

“Google Inc. has designed a cellphone it plans to sell directly to consumers as soon as next year, according to people familiar with the matter.

The phone is called the Nexus One and is being manufactured for Google by HTC Corp., these people said. It runs Android, the operating system for mobile phones that Google developed, they added.”

    Quibble: there may, in fact, be a Google Phone next year, but I think that you do not know what the word “official” means. This is not an official, Google announcement; it is, in fact, a rumor, at least for now.

    Quibble is noted and you're probaly right. I've been reading the Wall Street Journal for 40+ years and often have told others, “I'll believe it when I read it in the Wall Street Journal.” With that explanation, I hope you'll forgive the headline.

    Officially going to the bigger landmass or actually landing here?

    Certainly the WSJ reporting the rumor kicks it up a notch, but “people familiar with the matter” isn't even “informed sources”, let alone “Google official who wishes to remain nameless”. Could be anyone really…heck could even by Michael Arrington still pushing his original rumor, god knows he thinks he is familiar with EVERYTHING.

    A more authoritative rumour, but still a rumour…also I am hard pressed to see Goggle marketing approving a name like Nexus One.

    Apparently, the “Nexus” brand name is a reference to “Blade Runner” (and the short story it was based on, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”).

    I wonder how the current Android OEMs will feel competing with the developer of Android. Microsoft hasn't done this, and Palm spun off its software unit to try to appease licensees (which failed).
