Google tight-lipped on cellphone plan

by Saleem Khan, CBC News Online

Google finally got back to me with their comment on purported plans to launch their own cellphone:

"Mobile is an important area for Google and we remain focused on creating applications and establishing and growing partnerships with industry leaders to develop innovative services for users worldwide. However, we have nothing further to announce."

The Google spokeswoman who e-mailed the statement also noted: "This is all we plan to say."
