Rumor: Google Phone coming early next year ?

File this under rumor, according to Techcrunch Google is planing on releasing their own Google Phone early next (running Android obviously). It’s not known yet who is actualy building the phone, HTC would be the most logical choise, but Mike Arrigton clains that his sources are saying that it may be Samsung or LG. This rumor makes me think of the Zune phone/Pink stories we’ve been hearing these past months. For my part I can’t really see the point here, other than pissing off OEMs why would Google do this? Why build your own branded device when you have so many OEMs on board ? Take this rumor with a HUGE grain of salt..
