Google Phone to be launched today

In the US today sees the unveiling of the widely anticipated Google Phone.

The BBC reports that

The first mobile telephone using Google’s Android software is due to be unveiled on 23 September.

It will be available on the US network of T-Mobile and is expected to be on sale in October.

The first device to run the search giant’s operating system will be a handset from Taiwanese firm HTC called the “Dream”.

No price for the phone has been given yet but it is expected to be below the important $200 (£107) price point.

So why the interest in the phone?

Well as the BBC article goes on…

Google announced its plans for the Android phone software in November 2007 with a declared aim of making it easier to get at the web while on the move.

More and more people are using their phones less for making phone calls and more for using the web whilst on the move. Apple’s iPhone showed that you could use the web on the move, will Google’s Android do more than just the web?Google Phone to be launched today
