It’s fascinating how news can spread so quickly even on a late Saturday afternoon. Earlier today, Google publicly confirmed
on their blog
that they’ve handed out a new Android
2.1 powered device to employees worldwide. These very phones now have a name – Google Nexus One phone.

Twitter user Cory O'Brien. He says
"Google Phone = iPhone + a little extra screen and a scroll wheel. Great touch screen, and Android."
More intrigue, as industry insider Eldar Murtazin - who we last heard predicting Foxconn
as the supplier for the 4th-gen Apple iPhone - claims the Google Nexus One speculation is off the mark and that the incorrect rumors may initially have been driven by Apple. Full details after the cut.
