Google Phone 2006

Google has come a long way since the first commercial version of Android was introduced in September, 2008. Today there are hundreds of Android phones floating around the globe. Take a look at how far Google has come from the first renders of a “Google Phone,” which just surfaced online at The Verge. There’s not much information available on the device other than Google shopped it around at carriers as early as 2006.

The Verge┬ásaid that the phone was originally advertised as a device with “basic phone user interfaces” and that it was first shown to T-Mobile as a device that could be a “win-win” for both companies if it was launched with the carrier’s unlimited data plans. The Verge┬ásaid details on the phone, including the above renders, were revealed during Google’s current court battle with Oracle.
