Hardware partners be damned, Google is pursuing world domination and is doing so with its new Google phone. Plastered all over Twitter are enthusiastic tweets from Google employees and their friends expounding the awesomeness of a hot new HTC phone handed out to the them by mothership Google. The full touchscreen handset runs Android 2.1 and is supposedly slightly thinner than the Hero with a sexiness that “rivals the iPhone.” Did we mention it has a Snapdragon processor, high resolution OLED display and dual mics for noise reduction and advanced voice-to-text features? The Google phone will be built by HTC, customized to Google’s specifications and sold unlocked in early 2010 by Google. It has been suggested but not confirmed that the phone will support both T-Mobile and AT&T bands UMTS. According to Google, the phone has been handed out to employees so they can be the guinea pigs, testing out the new and exciting capabilities of this phone. If you’ve got one or have shots of it, you know where to head!
