Rumors are covering the Internets and it's neighbor the Interwebs that Google is getting ready to emerge in the Phone market, you can bet your ass Microsoft now is planning it themselves with the Zune.
First they are planning to win the auction for the wireless spectrum that is an open auction next year. Secondly, a group in Taiwan said they are manufacturing a phone requested by Google. Third of all the WALL STREET JOURNAL itself said that the Google phone is more than a rumor and that the two largest US wireless networks were approached. It's going to be a free phone with ads embedded.
That sound's like the perfect phone to me. I think all the current cellphone companies are shit, and I'd love to check my Gmail from my GPhone. It's definitely gonna have a huge screen (more space for ads), and with the wireless spectrum + dark fiber = super fast internet. It's also rumored to be based off the Linux platform which is more enough a reason for me. Soon enough there would be a GPhone Adblock Plus, so I'd be set. xD
What I love about Google, is their innovation. We would still have maps without pictures, 10 MB emails (2 mb increase coming soon!), no Google Earth, or clean text Ads, or an actual working spam filter. They are user friendly, and unobtrusive. They design the perfect product for the consumer, then worry about profit. Can't say the same for Microsoft or anyone else. >.>
Yahoo! is changing, but it still will take a while.
