Taiwan based manufacturer HTC (High Tech Computer) has apparently begun manufacturing the Google Phone, with a shipment of 1 million units to be ready for delivery late 2007.
Google handsets, supporting Texas Instruments (TI) 3G platform and EDGE (what? no HSDPA?), will not feature GPS functionality but they will feature integrated Gmail and Google search functions.
We understand that the handsets will initially be run on the Orange network and be co-branded as Google / Orange phones.
HTC declined to comment on the report.
We will update this post as soon as more information leaks. I was hoping that the Google Phone would be a HSDPA device and find it hard to believe it will only use EDGE. Google has already patented a LOT of mobile phone technology.
