Does GPay Equal a GPhone?

The Gphone rumors have been going on just about forever much like the Apple phone rumors had but while the iPhone did indeed emerge from its cocoon to shrilly claim a marketplace for itself in the great big marketplace. The difference though is that Google is not a hardware company while Apple is. Apple can do consumer electronics without going too far afield. It’s software that is actually a stretch for Apple, despite all the iLife hype, a triumph of interface over substance. Google by contrast is rooted in web applications.

Ultimately GPay is right up Google’s ally, a profitable application and one that branches out from its mediocre performing Google Checkout. But GPay is a long way from a GPhone. At the end of the day a hardware product requires extensive expenses and that is not something Google is likely to be too interested in at this stage.
