Google and the gPhone
Google continues its quest, if not rampage, to own search on the mobile device. Google purchased ad companies, intends to bid for wireless spectrum licenses, and invested millions in a yet to be release handset. Lacking telephony infrastructure, Google would have to partner with an existing Telco to delivere its intended services.
How would a no-cost gPhone affect the business models of existing Telcos or affect its relationship with Apple's iPhone? Or is there an Apple - Google partnership in the works? Whatever the outcome, the third screen (TV is #1 and PC is #2) will rapidly evolve to being more useful than texting for kids and email for execs.
