On Wednesday, Google took steps to remove itself from rumors that it had entered the smart phone race by claiming that hardware wasn’t its main concern.

“At this point in time, we are very focused on the software, not the phone,” said Richard Kimber, Google’s director of southeast Asian sales and operations. This comment synched with statements made by Google evangelist Vint Cerf’s comments made earlier this month that the company was more interested in constructing platforms for other firms.

These efforts, stated Kimber, would be demonstrated by integrating Google’s search tools rather than in creating its own device according to AppleInsider. This claim is backed by Google’s recent deals with Samsung and other handset device firms that have agreed to install the company’s search and mapping tools on their units. In addition, Apple has agreed to include Google’s search and map tools on its upcoming iPhone, due out this June.
