Second Generation Android Phone Code-named "Marvin"

By Brian Briggs

Mountain View, CA – As cell phone fanatics eagerly await the release of the first Android-based mobile phone from T-Mobile, details of second-generation devices from Google are already emerging. 

The second-generation Android phone will be manufactured directly by Google instead of third-party manufacturers.  With the help of a Google engineer, we were able to descend to the forty-second sub-basement in the Googleplex  to their hardware labs for an unauthorized sneak peek.

The phone will harness the computing power of every Google datacenter in a single handset.  "It'll be like having the brain the size of an entire planet in your hand," said one Google engineer who wished to remain anonymous.

One issue designers have been facing is to find enough for the phone to do so it doesn't get bored. "We have it compiling kernels, factoring primes and monitoring calls for the NSA, but after about thirty minutes of doing that the phone lets out an audible yawn and shuts itself off," said our source.

We were able to sneak an image of the prototype Gphone (see below) out of Google's hardware laboratories.  Our sources inside said that this is far from the final version of the phone which will feature rounded edges and a sleeker finish.
