Gadget nerds everywhere are all a tizzy about a slew of tweets broadcast by Google employees (and a few hangers-on) leaking the new "Google phone." Let's call this an unverified, very low on details rumor that's all but certain to be confirmed in the coming weeks, if not sooner.
All kinds of mixed up, mis-information is flying around right now - some of it is no doubt accurate, but let's remember the source: Google employees obviously would have a vested interest in calling the latest G-powered phone, "Like an iPhone on beautifying steroids." I'm not saying it isn't, I'm just saying we should all relax, sip some Egg Nog, and enjoy the rainy Northern California weekend.
Oh, and Happy Hanukkah to those of you of that persuasion!
BTW, I hear tell in reference to the Google Phone that it is real, it may well be sold directly by Google to work on AT&T and/or T-Mobile in the US and other GSM carriers abroad, and that "The next 12 months will be a revolutionary time in the wireless industry." That last quote came from someone who I know and trust but also has a vested interest in hyping the bejeezus out of this thing. So, again, find yourself a grain of salt and chill out. All will likely be revealed at CES (Jan 6th-10th) if not sooner.
