Android and gPhone rumours have been given a boost over the weekend with two news stories suggesting movement in both areas.

The first comes from TechCrunch, and suggests Google is still planning the once much rumoured gPhone, thanks to a quote from Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergei Brin and CEO Eric Schmidt from Hollywood Reorter that stated:

"The trio of Google execs also used the opportunity to talk about the inroads the company is making with its own branded mobile phone as a replacement for the iPhone."

Backing up this sound bite is the suggestion that San Francisco based Ammunition Design Group, which has apparently designed computers, mobile phones, hardware, and other devices for companies like Palm, HP, Dell, and Logitech, may be working with Google to create an Android-based, Google branded gPhone.

TechCrunch says it has "a good source swearing that Ammunition Group is designing the gPhone and that it is a seriously beautiful device"$.

On the Andoird front, it's being rumoured that OHA member T-Mobile is prepping the launch of the again, much-rumoured, Android-based HTC Dream, that was said to be used as an demo model for the mobile OS, on 1 October.
