SEARCH ENGINE BEHEMOTH Google has told hacks to clear their calendars for January 5.
Apparently the outfit wants to hold a briefing about "Android" but is not saying much more.
Word on the street is that Google will announce its own brand smartphone and various software packages that will be available on it and to work with it.
The rumour mill has already turned up word of a "Nexus One" smartphone which, if it is right, will be flogged unlocked for $530 and under a two year contract for $180.
January 5th's press conference date already tallies with an earlier leak that said that Google would begin selling its own phone on that date.
According Google's press invitation, the company will hold a press conference at 10am in California on January 5, with "demonstrations" scheduled between 11:30am and 1pm. Which means it will be unlikely to be talking about an Android Roadmap or something esoteric. µ
