After reading about the ‘Google PC‘ rumour that hit the blogosphere yesterday, I had been trying to gather together my thoughts on such a project.
But, it seems Google has beaten me to it and released a statement denying the fact that they are building their own computer hardware business.
It did seem a bit far fetched, to be totally honest.
Google are an able company, but, I cannot see them getting very far pitting themselves against mightily established players such as Dell & HP.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have many PC partners who serve their markets exceedingly well and we see no need to enter that market; we would rather partner with great companies,Ã¢â‚¬ï¿½
But, as RogerD says, this does not mean that they may not still lend their name to another product manufactured by a partner.
What remains undeniable is Larry Page, Google’s co-founder and president of products will be making a keynote speech at CES in Las Vegas this Friday and in true Google style, I would expect it to contain some type of product unveiling.
Google Calendar anybody? :)
