The Big G is at it again.

From the recent launch of Google Chrome to compete directly with Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox, now comes the so called Google Phone running on Android.

Android Mobile OS is also set to compete with Symbian and Microsoft Windows Mobile for cellphones, mobile devices and PDAs.

US telecom carrier T-Mobile will on September 23 a "Google phone" by Taiwanese firm HTC to hit stores in October.

Google hopes to make Android, an open source software, the dominant operating system for mobile phones and said to be designed with improved speed and quality of Internet experience on handsets.

Google also announced the "Open Handset Alliance" last year to develop Android, a team that includes China Mobile, HTC, Intel, Motorola, Qualcomm, T-Mobile, Telefonica, LG and eBay.

Android phone prototypes were demonstrated by ARM, Marvell, Texas Instruments, Qualcomm, NEC, ST Microelectronics recetnly at the Mobile World Congress.
