  1. Google Phone / Nexus One makes first Twitter appearance? Besides the pic, O'Brien tweets that the "Google Phone = iPhone + a little extra screen and a scroll wheel. Great touch screen, and Android." Granted, none of this is confirmed yet, but with Google releasing so many of the devices as part of its "mobile lab" concept, well, we expect to see plenty more sightings in the run up to the rumored January launch.

    Easier to believe when we actually see one in consumer production, instead of in market tests to see if there is adequate interest.

    I remember how much hype some of those tech flops made and when they lunched it all went downhill. Really good ideas but bad hardware.

    I hope Google clarifies its Android strategy soon. Maybe launching their own "Google Phone" and being able to tightly control both the software and hardware is best for Google and for competing with the iPhone, but it seems like they're stabbing companies like Motorola in the back.

    I agree. This seems like it could be very problematic for Google.
