Gphone rumors

Google seems to have taken a leaf from Apple's book: Say nothing officially, but ensure steady leaks to maintain interest. The latest rumor is that Google is deep in talks with Verizon over "how they would put together a partnership and ways to make money off the developments" according to Bloomberg, although they are not yet close to an agreement. Verizon confirmed the companies had talked but wouldn't comment further… Reuters and the WSJ said much the same thing and quoted their own sources, which could of course be the same person since they're all anonymous. Meanwhile, France Telecom has come out and formally denied being in talks with Google about a handset, reports Reuters.

Cnet reported on a survey by Evans Data Corporation showing that Google was the most popular choice for mobile developers working on location based services, followed by Microsoft and Nokia. Of course, Nokia's Navteq buy is still fresh.
