Rumors multiply of 'Google Phone' launch

"Specialized blogs are all abuzz this week with rumors that Internet giant Google will soon launch the "Google Phone" or "GPhone," a cheap mobile phone equipped with a Google operating system."

The most interesting thing about the rumored "GPhone" is that Google will likely not be willing to contract with just one cell phone provider. So, in stark contrast to the iPhone, Google's phone will only cost $100 and will potentially work with all cell phone service providers. Google may be doing what everyone wishes Apple would have done with the iPhone. If I were Steve Jobs, I'd be nervous because we all know Google has the same skill that Apple does when it comes to designing intuitive platforms that work exactly as a user thinks they should. A $100 version of the iPhone that works with my current cell phone provider? Sign me up!
