Google employees getting the Google phone for testing … be launched in Jan 2010?

By: t-marco December 12th, 2009


Google in going to hand out its new Google phone to its employees worldwide for testing it.  The new Google Phone will be made by HTC, and it will feature a full touchscreen handset, Android 2.1. Maybe thinner then the HTC Hero.  Snapdragon processor, high resolution OLED display and dual mics for noise reduction and advanced voice-to-text features.

The phone will be sold by Google fully unlocked in early 2010. We are sure if the Google phone will run on T-Mobile, AT&T or both 3G bands.

Update:  Google Phone is identifying itself as “Nexus One”. Additionally, Jon Gruber on Twiter says that the new Google phone will be compatible only with T-Mobile 3G bands, putting AT&T’s subscribers  only to use EDGE. T-Mobile users.. this is great news for US!!

An Android dogfood diet for the holidays

Saturday, December 12, 2009 8:58 AM

At Google, we are constantly experimenting with new products and technologies, and often ask employees to test these products for quick feedback and suggestions for improvements in a process we call dogfooding (from “eating your own dogfood”). Well this holiday season, we are taking dogfooding to a new level.
We recently came up with the concept of a mobile lab, which is a device that combines innovative hardware from a partner with software that runs on Android to experiment with new mobile features and capabilities, and we shared this device with Google employees across the globe. This means they get to test out a new technology and help improve it.
Unfortunately, because dogfooding is a process exclusively for Google employees, we cannot share specific product details. We hope to share more after our dogfood diet.

    Looking forward to the specs and availability. I’ve been holding off on the Droid and hoping for something like this in early 2010.

    I wish I worked for Google. It's not fair that I work for a really crap company that never gives out anything free! :(
