Google to enter phone market with GrandCentral acquisition?

Posted on Wednesday, Jun 27 2007 @ 03:00 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The guys from Tech Crunch are fairly confident that Google has acquired GrandCentral.
The basic idea around GrandCentral is “one phone number for all your phones, for life.” As we change jobs, homes and cell phones, there are a lot of phone numbers to keep track of, and keeping everyone up to date with your most recent phone numbers is a real cost. If you use GrandCentral you can give out a single phone number. What happens when that person calls that number depends on his/her relationship to you, and what you are doing at the time.

The company, which has raised less than $6 million in capital from Minor Ventures (the exact amount has never been disclosed), beta launched just last September. Earlier this year mainstream press and blogger attention heated up.
