Google In Talks With Cellphone Carriers, Manufacturers

With the FCC 700MHz auction looming over our heads, Google has been talking to various cellphone carriers about carrying Google-customized handsets. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon have all be contacted about the deal and no word yet on whether anyone is considering it, although Deutsche Telekom (T-Mo Germany) is considering the proposal.

As for manufacturers, only LG has been contacted, which is no biggie since LG already offers a few Google-branded handsets.
