Google launches its own phone called the Nexus One. However before that, there are so many leak pictures, videos, specifications and even the official website was leaked for a while. I think it can be considered the most leaked phone of 2009 or perhaps the most leaked mobile phone.
Finally! Street View on Google Maps has landed on our shores, been waiting for years for this!
Singapore, December 2, 2009 â Google today announced the launch of Street View in Singapore, allowing users to view and navigate 360 degree street-level imagery of Singapore. Taken by Street View cars along all public roads earlier this year, the imagery includes iconic locations like Orchard Road, Marina Bay and Clarke Quay; cultural areas like Chinatown, Little India and Kampong Glam; and the heartland like Tampines, Jurong and Woodlands. In addition to viewing the images on your PC, Street View can be accessed on your mobile phone, meaning you now have a virtual photo-based street guide of Singapore in your pocket. See it for yourself at maps.google.com.sg.

Google announces Google Chrome OS! But it would not be out till the 2nd half of next year. Looks like it will give Microsoft a run for its money for its Windows 7 Starter Edition targeting at netbooks.
Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Because we’re already talking to partners about the project, and we’ll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve.
