Google Partners With Nokia for Hardware Devices

Instant messaging, music, movies, browsing, wi-fi, it just doesn't make your morning coffee
Recently, Google has been launching several new web applications to complement its ever popular search technology.
reported that Google earlier this week
launched a new version of its Google Desktop as well as such web applications like Google Trends, and Google Co-op. Despite all of Google's new launches however, Google may yet still hold the most important announcement of all.
Google has entered into a partnership with Nokia to introduce a mobile device that will be able to communicate over existing wi-fi networks using a mobile version of Google Talk. The search giant introduced its version of instant messaging about a year ago that integrated well with its GMail service, allowing users to see when their email contacts were online -- if they were all using Google Talk.
According to inside information, the major announcement is slated for this coming Tuesday the 16th and the device is aimed to be sold at roughly $400 per unit. While on the pricey side, the device will also be able to browse the Internet and of course, come ready to do Google searching. The device is based on Nokia's 770 Internet Tablet, which Nokia launched back in September of 2005. Nokia and Google are hoping that with the two company's experiences and technology, mobile Internet browsing and instant messaging will be brought to a wider and bigger audience.
Looking back, it's important to note that Microsoft, one of Google's biggest search competitora, has been in the mobile space for a number of years. Pocket PCs and other PDAs that use Microsoft's mobile Windows operating system. With a partnership with Nokia, this will be Google's first major entry into the mobile space. The Google-Nokia browsing device is not a cell phone, but rather much like a PDA, with all the PDA-like features and more. It will be interesting to see how Yahoo and Microsoft will respond to Google's announcement. Analysts were expecting that Google would enter the mobile space sooner or later, and this is exactly the announcement they were waiting for.
