Rumour has it that Google will launch GooglePhone next week

Rumour has it that the GooglePhone will hit the streets of the US next week costing punters about £109. Like the iPhone it is expected to be tied to one operator T-Mobile.

According to Tracey and Matt’s blog this is the deal

The first “GooglePhone” will hit the streets of the US for $199 next week.  It’s a T-Mobile exclusive (For now) and will require a service agreement with T-Mobile.  In simple UK speak: its on contract, not PAYG.

Despite that, it does appear the phone is going to cost a lot less than the iPhone – but that’s dependant on what sort of contract you will be pushed into.

Oh and the HTC Dream / GooglePhone has now got a proper name – maybe.  Rumours suggest ‘T-Mobile G1’ is the rather unoriginal name.
