Google to launch new mobile phone
/ Tuesday, September 23, 2008
The first mobile phone to use Google's Android operating system is set to launch in New York today.
Made by Taiwanese firm HTC, the handset will be called Dream and is expected to retail at just under $200 (£107) when it goes on sale in October, the BBC reported. The mobile phone will be available on the US T-Mobile network and according to the BBC, Google says it wants to make it easier for people to access the internet while away from their computers. Google does face competition as Nokia, Microsoft and Apple all have sophisticated smartphone handsets with advanced technology available. These are considered to be handsets which provide more than basic calling and texting functions. Search engine giant Google celebrates its 11th birthday this month as it first registered its domain name in September 1997, Management Today reported.
