From a telecoms perspective there is a big appeal in the fact that Google is a search operation -- and of course the Google brand is a huge draw, said Julian Hewitt, senior partner at London-based telecommunications consultant firm Ovum.
Hewitt said a Google telephone service could be made to link with the Google search engine. A surfer could simply click a link within the search engine to dial a desired number.
However the reports have been, for the moment at least, denied by Google, who have dismissed these reports as rumour and speculation, according to IT and computer magazine PC Pro.
