The G-Phone from HTC?

I was beginning to wonder if Google had given up on the mobile phone idea. I haven't heard any good new rumors in a couple of weeks. However, they are once again making headlines with fresh rumors today.

Apparently Google has teamed up with mobile phone manufacturer HTC to release their 'G-phone' by the end of the year. The phone is rumored to be 3G compatible, though only with EDGE.

What do you get when you cross a USB cable with a phone cord?

Sometimes I find the most simplistic creations to also be the most useful. Take the spork for example, they just combined a spoon and a fork to create the ultimate utensil.
