are rumors that Google is planning to launch a mobile phone in partnership with Dell.
Marketing Week, quoting senior industry sources, claims the two companies will reveal their plans at next month’s 3GSM telecom conference in Barcelona. Google insiders deny an announcement is that close.
There had had been talk of Google launching a “Gphone”, to go up against Apple’s iPhone, but it was not clear how this would come about. Dell has also been planning a move into mobile phones for some time and already makes PDAs, so the rumor makes sense.
