Submission + - Google: "we're not doing a mobile phone"

thefickler writes: It looks like we won't be phoning home with a Google mobile anytime real soon. A top Google executive has denied outright that the company is developing a mobile phone.

Last week the rumor mills were working overtime after a Google official speaking in Spain said that the company was investigating offering a mobile phone and British phone analyst, Richard Windsor, claimed that during CeBIT Google staff confirmed that a Google mobile phone was being developed.

However, it seems that the Google mobile phone rumor has finally been nipped in the bud.

"We're not doing a mobile phone, I'd like to find something that is broader, rather than do yet another mobile device," said Alan Eustace, senior vice president of engineering and research.

Anything cut to length will be too short.
