Looks like I might end up eating my words:

"There has been a new batch of rumors swirling about Google producing
a "gPhone" mobile telephone after a Reuters reporter stated High Tech
Computer Corp would be designing the Linux phone for Google. A
friendly penguin has told us at Phoronix that Google is looking to
team up with OpenMoko for their "gPhone". Google will not be using the
FIC Neo1973 GTA01, but they will be bringing the open-source OpenMoko
platform to their own hardware, which looks to be manufactured through
HTC, and making a few changes along the way. "
