It Is Official – Google Got A Major Hard-on For Wireless Carriers

It didn’t even take 12 hours from my last post about Google’s plans to take on iPhone, telecom carriers, Microsoft, Yahoo, and AOL that I just heard another juicy News related to that. Based on what I was just told by a few friends who work at Google, their company might be able to take on a few the wireless carriers even earlier than I had predicted.

Apparently, Google handed out a new type of smartphone called Nexus One to their employees just a few days ago – Software, Hardware, the Operating Systems and listen to this, the backbone wireless network are all made by Google! Double WOW! So, yes, it will be a Google brand smartphone that could really hurt wireless carriers. It is a good News for us, the consumer regardless. The phone has a larger screen. The touchscreen device uses the new version 2.1 of Google‘s Android operating system. Other manufacturers also using Android operating system include Samsung and Motorola, and the DROID on Verizon Wireless last month.

Not quite sure when their phone is going to be released to the market, but certainly, I will stay on top of it and keep you all posted. Watch this News. They have their own carrier as supposed to partnering with an exiting wireless carrier – like T-mobile or Verizon!!! Have no idea how they got their own wireless backbone infrastructure. Will find out.
