    honestly to me it sounds like a recipe for disaster, I dont see it being more then youtube, google talk and a phone all together, which i already have in my bb

    I think if they can offer services simular to what BB has to offer w/o an additional data plan, they could make some serious noise.

    google wil one day rule this earth...

    i was reading on the yahoo finance page that google is coming out with an OS and will team up with the verizon network to take down the iphone, also google is starting to take part in the social networking scene, dont be shocked if google is the first OS to have both a myspace and facebook app

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Google is already in the game. They just want to start making their own phones instead of putting their software on everybody elses. That was their "consumer research" phase. Now get ready for phase 2. Device Development. Phase 3 will be introducing testing and Marketing the device

    Re: Google wants in the game

    Google is not actually making its own phone (the speculated gPhone) -- it is only providing software and services to developers... for the time being, at least. It would not make much sense to compete against phone makers when its highly successful core businesses are elsewhere, and if anything they move in parallel with the phone makers'. The keywords are synergy and symbiosis -- if you like Microsoftese .

    Now if Verizon or AT&T do not want to be in the consortium, it's their choice. Considering Google's financial footprint as well as quality of software [e.g. Gmail for starters, a successful AJAX -plus app, up and running when for others "Web 2.0" was only a gleam in their eye] said choice seems to me a poor one.
