    There have reportedly been rumors of a 'Googlephone' that would respond to Apple's iPhone. And until now, they have been just that....rumors. However, The Inquirer recently found some patents that suggest the contrary. The Inquirer derives, based on the patents, that the phone will be dual-mode (will work with WiFi and Cellular connections). The phone should come in two versions, one that will support cdmaOne, and one that will support GSM. However, the most interesting thing about the 'Googlephone' would be a possible attempt by Google to do something like T9.

    although i am quite fond of the Google brand i couldn't take google branded hardware seriously, This Google phone wouldnt surprise me if it were actually voip to rather than an actual device.

    I mean, seriously, google has their hands in everything. I wish I would have owned this company and sold it for millions :). BTW, what is T9?

    Interesting the design differences it is taking:
