Does A Job Ad Signal The Return Of The Google Phone?
Just when you thought it was safe to deny the existence of a Google Phone, more rumors stir the blogosphere. Late last week Dan Jones at Unstrung pointed out that Google posted a job ad for hardware product manager. So much for Google not getting into the hardware business. Oh, it gets better.
Just when you thought it was safe to deny the existence of a Google Phone, more rumors stir the blogosphere. Late last week Dan Jones at Unstrungpointed out that Google posted a job ad for hardware product manager. So much for Google not getting into the hardware business. Oh, it gets better.This isn't the only wireless job ad on Google's site. Jones pointed out another posting advertising a position for a strategic partner development manager. They're looking for someone with "extensive partner/business development experience working with large U.S. wireless carriers and handset OEMs."
Sounds like they're working on a mobile phone to me. If they're not, then Google plans to hire some people who will go a long way -- and I do mean a really long way -- to make sure that they help their hardware partners get handsets to market. Somehow, I don't think they're hiring people just to help their handset partners.
