According to the mythical Google G-Phone is set for release in 2010.

Google has, thus far, avoided diving into the hardware side of the mobile market, deciding instead to offer its Android operating system as a software platform licensed to other hardware vendors. Rumours of an Android-powered device designed by the tech company refuse to go away however.
