Google Voice Android widgets leaked

August 30, 2010: 10:23 AM ET

An upcoming release of the T-Mobile G2 build was leaked, along with some new Google Voice widgets.

While they don't offer VoIP, the widgets that were extracted from an unreleased T-Mobile G2 build allow easy access to Google Voices features, demonstrated below.

Google (GOOG) released Voice on Gmail last week in a surprise move that had many thinking Google was targeting Skype and Facebook. Having a full Google Voice VoIP application on Android devices would be a game changer.

It is very simple: If Google releases Voice for Android as a full VoIP client, the mobile telcos stand to lose their voice revenue and effectively become dumb pipes.
