When Google will launch Gphone in India?


Latest Buzz over the Virtual World is all about the launch of Google's much hyped G Phone in India within two coming weeks, ALL FINGERS ARE CROSSED AND LIPS ARE SEALED : )


The Google Phone

Google is the boss of the internet and the boss’s phone gets 1,020,000 results. The GPhone coming in India gets 142 results in Google News. Now the interesting part even Google doesn’t know when the Google Phone is coming out, at least officially. Three weeks ago I did a story on the probable Google Phone, on its pros and cons, partnerships with Vodafone, Samsung and LG and how mobility has been high on Google agenda for a long time, all I managed getting from the Google spokesperson was “Mobile is an important area for Google and we remain focused on creating applications and establishing and growing partnerships with industry leaders to develop innovative services for users worldwide. However, we have nothing further to announce."

Sources close to the project reportedly revealed that a simultaneous launch across the US and Europe is expected, and that announcements would be sent to media firms in India and other parts of the world.

The only obstacle in Google's path is US regulatory approval, which is also expected soon, the sources added. Towards this global telephonic foray, the search major will take a hit to it's bottom line to the tune of an estimated $7-8 billion.

And while not confirmed, Google is also believed to be in talks with Indian providers for offering data and content and platforms including Instant Messaging (IM) and search functions.

Responding to these reports, a Google spokesperson said that they don't comment on market rumor or speculation. But that the company is committed to providing users with access to the world's information, and that mobile becomes more important to these efforts every day.

The spokesperson said they are collaborating with partners worldwide to bring Google search and applications to mobile users everywhere. However that as of now, they have nothing to announce...

Perhaps Google, the God on online seekers, would do well to remember the wise words of Josh Homme “foolishly play with the fires of rumor, only to risk being burned by its treacherous flames.” The RMachine beware sometimes speed kills.
