gPhone?Darn, everyone knew Google was going to announce something today. And everyone (including me) was hoping for a gPhone. (While keeping up with iPhone unlocking news is more fun than watching paint dry, :P I'd rather have something solid to work on.)
Nope, it's something else...Instead Google says the Open Handset Alliance and Android is the way to go. Not a physical phone but an open mobile software platform. Argh! I guess I can't blame Google for this move, since they're mainly a software company. The only consolation is that I have potentially more "open" phones to choose from, as the Open Handset Alliance consists of a number of mobile phone makers.
Everything you want to know about Google Android and the Open Handset AllianceHere are a couple of informative links because I'm too depressed to read through everything. :P
