$199 for the New Google Phone

September 19th, 2008 posted by · No Comments

The first ‘Google phone’, a mobile phone designed to bring a desktop computing experience to mobile devices, will go on sale for $199, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The handset was obscured by masking tape during a recent conference, but was rumoured to look like the Dream, a phone developed by HTC, which is reported to be the first commercially available mobile phone running Android.

T-Mobile will be the only U.S. carrier to sell the Google phone. The company will be competing with AT&T, who is selling the Apple iPhone. The device will be similarly priced to the iPhone at $199.

The Google phone is expected to be released September 23, with sites tracking its launch already.

Personally, I think it’ll be pretty virally spread, just like the iPhone is, and hopefully they can bring it up to Canada later on. Although, I’m not a fan of the data plans here offered by Rogers.
