The folks from the Register had a chance to sit down with Google’s Craig Walker who, as Google’s product manager for Google Voice, would perhaps be the one person best placed to know as much as possible about whether or not Google was working on a phone of its own. Where Google’s responses in the past have always been fairly straightforward denials that it’s working on a phone, Walker seems to take the question slightly differently, saying,
