There were rumors since long time that google is planning to launch their own mobiles (google phone), but by making an agreement with Zingku that Google acquire Zingku service, Google is entering in to the mobile world. Though there is no official new released from Google about this acquisition, http://www.zingku.com/ says that "We've entered into an agreement to have Google acquire our Zingku service."

Let's wait for an official announcement by Google.

About Zingku

"Our service is designed from the mobile phone, outward, allowing you to create and exchange things of interest ranging from invitations to "mobile flyers" with friends in a trusted manner. On the mobile phone, Zingku uses standard text messaging and picture messaging features that come with every phone. On the web, our service uses your standard web browser and instant messenger. There is nothing to install.

With Zingku, things you wish to promote or share, can easily be created and fetched via mobile, instant messenger, and web browser. Our service integrates your mobile phone with a personalized web site so that you can easily move (zing) things back and forth between the web and and your mobile as well as powerfully connect with friends and optionally their friends."

The Zingku service is currently available as a "private beta" only in the U.S. Zingku does not charge for its mobile features. However, standard/other text messaging charges may apply from your wireless carrier.
