Google Phone to Resemble a BlackBerry, Will Run on Multiple Carriers

Illustration for article titled Google Phone to Resemble a BlackBerry, Will Run on Multiple Carriers

The first time we saw the Google phone (codenamed Switch) we weren't sure what to make of it. Two months later the Internet is buzzing again with claims that the "GPhone" will be BlackBerry-like and available on multiple carriers, rather than just one. There's still no pricing or better images to show off, but one thing's for sure, it'll be interesting to see all these phones clash for our attention.

HM.

I wonder if this is the reason why Verizon passed on the iPhone?

They though Google was going to have more to offer.

Realistically, from a marketing standpoint, it was probably a dumb idea, but I bet that Apple wanted a heavy chunk of the profits, and the use of iTunes on their phone, which would be two reasons Verizon would turn down deal A to find deal B which would end up being more profitable for them in the end.
