HTC is rumoured to be manufacturing cell phones from Google. These phones will be officially launched by the end of this year, DigiTimes reports:
The makers also said the shipment volume will reach as high as one million units.
Google handsets will hit the global market in 2008, noted the component makers.
The Google handset will support Texas Instruments' (TI) 3G platform and EDGE, pointed out the makers. The handset, however, will not feature GPS functionality. The device will also feature built-in G-mail and Google search.
Industry watchers expect Google will first partner with European telecom provider Orange for the launch of the handset. Google also has been in touch with other service providers for orders, noted sources.
I'm not sure how accurate this report is but DigiTimes mostly has got sources.
