Although it appears that there won’t be any one singular Google Phone, there have apparently been some murmurings around the interconnected network that Chinese device manufacturer “E28” has developed a phone that “has been pegged as being the likely core of the Gphone, with Google’s suite of applications closely integrated.”
The thing runs Linux. Okay great. It also can connect to Wi-Fi networks and cellular networks. So can a lot of other phones. It seems weird to call any device THE Google Phone, though. I don’t think Google’s as interested in hardware partnerships as it is in getting its software on as many devices as possible so take this one with a grain of something.
Google Phone revealed as E28 Linux handset! Well, maybe… [Tech Digest]
