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.

"And remember: Evil will always prevail, because Good is dumb." -- Spaceballs
