Besides the rumor the Google Phone might be touchless, there’s a set of new about the handset developed by the search engine, Samsung and Orange, its partners for the project.

According to Simeon Simeonov, a VC of Poralis Venture Partners, the handset might use scalable vector-based graphics instead Ajax technology. Although it might look like the Adobe Flash-Lite technology, the multimedia Flash engine for mobile devices, Google will use an alternative engine provided by Skia, a tech company acquired by the search engine in late 2005. Other features includes VoIP, he also said, and optimized Java running on the C++ core.

If those details come to be true, the Google Phone will have graphics as slick as the Apple iPhone.
