Google Denies Google PC Rumors

January 4, 2006

An story in the L.A. Times said that Google was working on launching a Google PC -- a cheap computer that would be sold at Wal-Mart. The article said the computers would cost around $200. There has been speculation elsewhere that Google will launch something called "Google Cubes." However, both Google and Wal-Mart have denied the Google PC rumor according to an article in InfoWorld.
Google representatives in the U.K. denied the LA Times report as "wholly inaccurate", stressing the company's good relationships with existing PC makers.

Speaking to Macworld UK they said: "We have many PC partners who serve their markets exceedingly well and we see no need to enter that market."

The LA Times reported on Sunday that the purported Google PC could cost as little as a couple of hundred dollars because it would not use Windows.
It sounds like the Google PC rumor may be over but it certainly won't end speculation about what the Google monster plans to do next. Google speculation is one of the most popular activities of technology columnists and tech bloggers.
