Google to unveil its own smart phone

Google Inc.'s vision for how a mobile phone should be made and sold will likely raise the stakes in the Internet search leader's bid to gain more control over how people surf the Web while they're on the go.

The catalyst in Google’s latest attempt to shake up the mobile market apparently will be the Nexus One, the first smart phone designed by the company’s own engineers.

Google has said little about the phone except to confirm that its workers received the handsets three weeks ago for a final round of internal testing.

Google is expected to provide the first concrete details about the phone, along with the company’s vision for how such devices should be made and sold, during a news conference today at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, Calif.
