The head of Google's Spanish and Portuguese operations, Isabel Aguilera, has confirmed that company engineers are working on a phone in their 20% time - the time Google allows engineers to work on their own projects. The phone Aguilera describes is a handset designed to give people in developing countries access to Google's services.
