Google Phone prototype to be unveiled in Barcelona

British chip designer ARM will demo an Android-based prototype mobile phone at the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona next Monday. Google's open-source Android software platform will be used by T-Mobile and HTC when they release Android-based phones later this year.

In addition, Google is bidding on wireless spectrum space in the United States which would place Google in direct competition with the big mobile telecom providers.
