Though the issue still isn't exactly black and white, it seems that Google has put the Google Phone rumors to rest - for the time being.
"Mobile is an important area for Google," said a spokeswoman from Google named Erin Fors in a statement last week. "We remain focused on creating applications and establishing and growing partnerships with industry leaders to develop innovative services for users worldwide. However, we have nothing further to announce."
Makes sense, doesn't it?
