Google's Mobile OS Move

Lora Bentley

Call it gPhone. Call it Googlephone. Heck, call it whatever you want. The point is, it's no secret that Google plans to move into the mobile space soon.


And according to our friends at Engadget, the OS for that phone will be Linux-based. Here's what Ryan Block has to say:

[T]he "Gphone OS" (our name for it, not theirs) began development after Google's very quiet 2005 acquisition of mobile software company Android, started by Danger co-founder and former-prez/CEO Andy Rubin. At Google, Andy's team has developed a Linux-based mobile device OS (no surprise), which they're currently shopping around to handset makers and carriers ... suggests the first version will appear sometime next month.
