I wouldn't be surprised if Google made a prototype/reference phone, for 
testing (just like Trolltech did with the Greenphone) and to eliminate any 
hardware obstacles/delays that might be caused by other manufacturers. I'm 
not that certain that this automatically means this phone will be a 
mainstream product pushed to end users.
