Google’s purchase of Android in 2005 kicked off speculation about the company’s interest in mobile services. Android’s work within Google has been completely silent; the Internet has done the talking for Google’s mobile desires.

Engadget offered a post that cited "a number of very trustworthy sources" about Google’s mobile phone work. Soon, Google should make its mobile OS available, and jump into competition with Nokia and Microsoft on that playing field.

"We can’t help wondering what El Jobso thinks about all this. Apple has been so buddy-buddy with Google lately, especially on the iPhone," Engadget’s Ryan Block wrote. A Google phone OS really doesn’t compete with Apple, though.

Apple’s hardware really competes with itself, within Apple’s fervent userbase. Google isn’t going to cannibalize iPhone sales because their business model, advertising, needs to reach as many people as possible. That means less-expensive handsets.

These latest rumors about the Google phone have been popping up faster ever since the announcement about Google providing Sprint’s future WiMAX customers with a portal of services. We’re going to guess that a GPhone will emerge close to Sprint’s opening of that high-speed service.

After all, rich media advertising from Google AdWords will come through a lot better over a fast connection.
