Google shoots down mobile phone rumors
Google executives have shot down rumors about a rumored Google mobile phone. Richard Kimber, Google’s manager director of sales and operations in South-East Asia, told the Australian Financial Review that the company is focused on software and not on making a phone. Kimber added that the search engine giant is not interested in entering a very competitive mobile phone market.
Simeon Simeonov, a US venture capitalist, wrote in his blog earlier this month that Google was working on a phone. He said inside sources told him that a Blackberry-like phone was being made and Simeonov pointed to various recent acquisitions by Google to back up his claims.
