The Google Phone Is A Certainty
It looks like that Google Phone that was real and coming early next year has now become a certainty. According to Gizmodo, a trusted source has tipped them off that is adding even more intrigue to the perpetual Google Phone rumor and of course, brings more questions. The Google Phone will differ from your run-of-the-mill Android Handsets (which even the DROID will be grouped with) because it runs a different version of Android that has yet to be seen on Google-branded hardware.
Prototypes of the Google Phone is expected to hit Google's Headquarters in the next few weeks. The prototypes will run the new version of Android, Flan or maybe even a version beyond that. And the juiciest tidbit of all? That the Android we know and love may not be the 'real' Android. We're assuming that means the 'real' Android will be available on the Google Phone.

Google is the owner of Android so they can add new features to Android that is yet to be announced. It may require hardware spec changes or even additional buttons. The phone manufacturer knows this. Manufacturers constantly add new features to their phones all the time, adding & taking away buttons. Look at the evolution of Blackberries, HTC, Palm, Motorola and Samsung phones to name a few. The first WinMo phones have gone through the same evolution. WinMo 5 phones can't even run 6.5 due to hardware constraints. Correct me if I'm wrong but some WinMO 6.0 phones can't even be updated to 6.5. Heck, we don't even know if its true or not. Maybe Google is going to add "nightshot" capabilities. They can tell their manufacturer (any of the current Android phone manufacturers) that they must include a LED flash as well as IR LED for totally darkness captures.
Wouldn't that be cool. That's just hardware. Can we all update to it. I think not. We lack the IR LED. Maybe the Google phone is going to be released as a G4 phone, who knows??? What we're seeing is EXTREMELY RAPID OS development (unlike Microsoft) before our very eyes and we're not use to it. We were all worried if Android 1.0 phones could be updated to 1.5 let alone to 2.0. We all had a sigh of relief when we learned YES the G1 can and has been hacked to do so. We all saw Android develop form 1.0 to 2.0 in about a years time. Compare the same to WinMo or Palm or Blackberry. Early Blackberries running 3.0 or 4.0 can't do what 5.0 can do now. I don't think you should blame Google for OS evolution. Google might be the first to come out with some new Google app or hardware feature for that moment in time, but as long as they don't make it EXCLUSIVE to themselves, any phone manufacturer who wants to buck up and add the required specs should have the opportunity to do so. Then again, Google might put on a time limitation exclusivity on it. That's how Operating Systems flourish, by multiplication. The phone manufacturers themselves don't adhere to a strict Android implementation. Look at the difference between the UI of the Hero, Moment and Droid. Manufacturers add their own bells and whistles all the time. When you buy a phone, you're buying present day technology. PERIOD.No where is iit written that your phone will be able to run future OS updates. If the phone happens to have OTA update capable or is flashable, you've bought yourself a small insurance because not all phones are upgradeable. I have Sprint HTC Hero eagerly awaiting a possible 2.1 sometime soon. Long Live Android, multiply and flourish!!
