Update! It was not a rumor after all and Google Nexus One was indeed launched on 5th Jan. It’s a separate thing that due to quite a number of user-reported issues that began surfacing in the phone, Google had to setup Nexus One Phone Support Hotline in Feb 2010.
Rumors have been circulating for a while now that Google is developing its own Android-based handset. The Wall Street Journal reports that the rumors are confirmed and that Google employees are currently using a prototype of the Google device, which will be dubbed the Nexus One, though the newspaper can only say that this is “according to people familiar with the matter.” The handset allegedly will be built by Chinese cell phone manufacturing giant HTC and will run Google’s own wireless operating system, Android.
Sources cited by Reuters have ‘confirmed’ that the phone will be available in the dual format, making it seem less likely that Google will shift that many from its own stock. The same source stated that the Google phone could be with us as soon as 5 January, likely directly from the search company. “In the long term Google will become a seller and get commission from operators,” the source said to Reuters.
