Google Phone

Google Phone:

We told you the Google phone was confirmed. And now some Googler's seem to be confirming it, too.

We noticed a Twitter message from Google Program Manager Leslie Hawthorn, who writes "Stuck in mass of traffic leaving work post last all hands of 2009. ZOMG we had fireworks and we all got the new Google phone. It's beautiful."

Another guy, Jason Howell, says he had his hands on the device, which he says is made by HTC and is running Android 2.1: "The new Google Phone runs on HTC hardware. I saw it w/Android 2.1. Homescreen has new visual enhancements like animated desktop wallpaper."

"Supposedly, Google employees were given tons of these phones today. unlocked," he adds.

And one last one: "A friend from Google showed me the new Android 2.1 phone from HTC coming out in Jan. A sexy beast. Like an iPhone on beautifying steroids."

It looks to us like Google may have handed out a lot of the new Google Phone devices today to employees, and naturally they're showing it to friends.
