Google launches it’s Gphone in India!

Wall Street Journal had an article early this month that Google was to launch a mobile phone, and some of the reasons stated was that Google generates tons of ad dollars and with it’s own mobile phone it can generate a lot more ad dollars. Apart from that by launching it’s own phone it can bundle in all its applications like Google maps, Gmail, camera, videao, built in Wi-Fi technology, Global Positioning System etc. Now, Apple better watch out…

But now Google seems all set to roll out it’s Gphone to the world and the stage is to be set in India. Now most technological innovations are launched in the US, but with India suddenly being the “in place” and definitely not a country to be disregarded, Google is all set to launch it’s new Gphone with India as a back drop.

In the US, Google is waiting for the regulatory approval and it will be interesting to see if the Gphone will cause the same excitement and will have as much sex appeal as the iPhone.

  2. I just landed my paws on a G Phone and the gizmo has enough chutzpah to stand on its own. The G Phone went on sale in US through T-Mobile for $ 179.00 compared to the I Phone available through AT & T for $ 199.00, both with two year non-cancellation contracts. What I like about the G Phone is its bulk and size with its QWERTY keypad that makes typing and texting a breeze. In size it is comparable to a Blackberry but much faster on a 3G network. The I Phone irritated me because the touchpad ended up calling people at the strangest moments as the phone pressed automatically when in my pocket. Also, I Phones walled garden big brother approach is too controlling and a detriment to innovative applications when compared to the open source Android platform. The G Phone is a web surfers and a textaholics dream with great tactile feedback and ample space for fat fingers. I still have an I Touch so that I can access the web at Wi-Fi hotspots without a 2 year plan. I will get a Blackberry Storm or Bold next for the voice plan so that I can have the Holy Trinity of Smart Phones, the I Touch, G Phone and a Blackberry. Technically it will be two lines, but I can still use the I Touch to surf in Wi-Fi Hotspots. The Blackberry is an office goers companion, while the G Phone is good casual company. The I Touch is eye candy with sex appeal to impress airheads.
