Google working on a cell phone?

Job openings at Google suggest the search giant may be working on a mobile phone:
"Google is experimenting with a few wireless communications systems including some completely novel concepts," according to the Web-site recruitment text. "We are building a small team of top-notch Logic Designers and Analog Designers aimed at nothing less than making the entire world's information accessible from anywhere for free."

Additional qualifications include "extensive circuit modeling and analysis experience, excellent programming skills, experience with switch power supply design" and a ham radio license.

With the mobile phone soon to become the most popular device to access the Internet, it wouldn't be unthinkable for the world's largest search-engine company to want to grab a bigger piece of the action, according to some analysts.

"In the wake of Apple and some other big-name brands moving into the handset business, why not Google?" said Phil Taylor, senior analyst with Strategy Analytics.
