Once upon a time there was a giant search engine company that wanted to get into the mobile space and their prototype phone looked like a white Blackberry. What you see above are a result of court documents revealing the original Google phone, a portrait QWERTY mobile device and other important details, such as a partnership with T-Mobile. These documents came to light in the Sun vs Google case for the use of Java in Android. In these documents, you can see Google original plans for a phone, which did not include a touchscreen and relied exclusively on hardware-based buttons. This TI’s OMAP850 200 mhz based prototype device was to have 64 mb of RAM, a Mini-SD card slot, a 2-megapixel camera and QVGA display.
