"Color us skeptics on this one, but we've met a tipster claiming to have the scoop on Google Switch. This version of the mythical Googlephone is said to be the result of a collaboration with Samsung -- not Alpha Networks or HTC. Of course, it's a button-less touchscreen device as is the ragethese days only this time with GPS built-in for pinpoint navigation around Google Maps.
What's pictured in that all too familiar blur (Photoshopped Much?) is the phone's contact program said to be an extended version of Gtalk combining Gmail, text and instant messaging. According to our tipster, the device doesn't have any on-board storage. That's right, all your applications are served up over the network with new apps "attached" to your account via a web interface. So what is it... the real deal or engorged fanboy fantasy?

I wonder who they will choose as a phone carrier? Knowing Google, they will want to make something unique and proprietary. But only time will tell, I like everyone else who learn about this deal will follow it closely on this one. Maybe even meet another tipster at a convention.
