The Gphone is coming, and we should know what it's all about in September.  Running Linux and projected to be very cheap, it will be interesting to see what the phone is capable of, and if Google has plans to emulate Apple's locked service.  According to what the Inquirer learned, Google seems to hope to make money from ads (Ad Words?) piped directly to the phone.

"THE GPHONE is set to be announced in September and it will be cheap, according to rumours spread by bogger Mark

"Rizzn" Hopkins.

Hopkins, who has a deep throat inside Google, claims that the device runs a modified version of the Linux kernel and

has a built in GPS.

This will mean that it can power Google Maps and other with other Google apps like Gmail, Calendar and Docs. The

phone will appear in the US by the end of the year."
