As predicted on this site less then 1 week ago on this blog…..

Google will not be making a “G-Phone” instead they will be contributing to the operating system and building applications.

From the Press Release:

Despite all of the very interesting speculation over the last few months, we’re not announcing a Gphone. However, we think what we are announcing — the Open Handset Alliance and Android — is more significant and ambitious than a single phone. In fact, through the joint efforts of the members of the Open Handset Alliance, we hope Android will be the foundation for many new phones and will create an entirely new mobile experience for users, with new applications and new capabilities we can’t imagine today

Android is the first truly open and comprehensive platform for mobile devices. It includes an operating system, user-interface and applications — all of the software to run a mobile phone, but without the proprietary obstacles that have hindered mobile innovation.

Techcrunch has a great writeup although no credit 2 shoestradaums for the prediction

This is truly awesome news!

  1. So far for 2007 you have been rocking with your predictions.

    Can I ask for a status update on that penny auctions site that you started? I know you probably don’t like doing it, but enquiring minds want to know!

  2. Damn Shoe I just saw the feedburner chicklet. Im pretty sure the Google glitch is over and yet your still down to 14k? That’s some thing crazy!

    BTW. When you gonna tell everyone the big secret? 🙂

  3. lol at shoestradaumus ….. Yes you have certainly been on point with your predictions. Let us now sit back and watch the evolution of this industry. Or better yet jump in and take advantage of it!

  4. The Feedburner count is broken (not reporting properly). Many sites have lower counts today. Google it.

  5. did you really not read the multiple news articles saying they were not doing a gphone from a month ago? that they were sending out the phones to developers (50,000) for developing in december? i can predict google will go to 700, because it already has and it is widely publicized.

  6. Than how did you know to buy $250,000 worth of Google stock during the IPO?

    Insider trading anyone??

  7. aaaahhahaa nice, i like how you refreshed that image a little (i think anyway, I don’t remember it being *shoe*stradamus last time)… good call though

  8. Very nice, I am definently looking forward to an Open sourced mobile OS as much I like windows mobile;)

  9. Be interesting to see what comes of this. I know having worked in the mobile phone industry for a few years how sensitive to sharing and helping one another the manufacturers can be.

  10. Wow! That’s really interesting! I cant wait to see that develop! Thanks for the info.

  11. Shoe, Can you kick the font size up a couple of notches on your home page?

    I am starting to get eye strain trying to read that teenie, weenie type!

    Thanks, One Eyed Jack

  12. The Gphone concept will return at some point. They are probably just trying to change things up on us so there is more of a surprise! BS

  13. Wasn’t Google in the running for that block of wireless spectrum that the FCC is dangling like a carrot? I guess At&T is going to end up grabbing it.

  14. This IS great news. I feared Google would come out with something clunky because, well, they just don’t do hardware. The idea, of course, would be to have the logic of the software done by Google, the UI by Apple, the hardware by Samsung and the network be Skype, but this is a good step in the right direction.

  15. Are using Firefox? Simply hold down ctrl and scroll your wheel mouse down a couple of notches.

    or press Ctrl and the = key.

  16. google always trying to take part in anything with an abstract concept, using them as a fundamental.

  17. I think Google has learned from MS…software companies struggle with hardware.

  18. Hmm I was waiting for the phone… anyways… still have to stick with my W810i… I consider the comment by Chetan… SMphone will surly rock :p

  19. It just seems that the markets Google are losing in, they try to form alliances to have any chance at gaining marketshare. And they have the power to do it!
