Wall Street Journal Promotes Google GPhone Rumors

Much buzz online today about a Wall Street Journal article promoting the rumor that Google is close to entering the mobile phone market by releasing an advertising-supported smartphone called the GPhone… or maybe the Google Phone… or maybe the Whoozawhatsis…

"Google has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in the cellphone project, say people who have been briefed on it," write the WSJ's Amol Sharma and Kevin J. Delaney. "It has developed prototype handsets, made overtures to operators such as T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless, and talked over technical specifications with phone manufacturers. It hopes multiple manufacturers will make devices based on its specs and multiple carriers will offer them."

    There is no doubt from every evidence that Google has determined to dominate the search market in the mobile industry. You would be surprised how many people will be happy to get free phones supported by ads.

    It will be interesting to see how much Google can use mobile ads to subsidize the gphone. It’s a nice alternative to iphone, but definitely not a iphone killer.
