Funny, I think they may well release a phone actually. Not to compete with apple but to compete with the operators. I think the next big battle will be between the major Internet Cos and the mobile operators - Google doesn't want to share all the lolly with the greedy wireless telcos, and I think we might see them trying to offer free/freemium ad-supported mobile services. Certainly recent moves in the US suggest that mobile is extremely important to Google, and I cant see the current walled model of the operators being defensible forever. As for positioning of a Google phone? I imagine it would be low end (read cheap for the masses) but allowing Internet access. That's what they're interested in. All IMHO of course. Rgds R

In fact at the end of this year 50% of the world population will have a mobile phone but most of these will not be running Windows Mobile
Good reminder. I'd expect Google to do what the've done in the HTML / Ajax area: push the boundaries for the people that have the advanced gadgets, while still providing a basic service for those that don't.

It's like with most things in business; you can offer super-dooper, do everything services that will only work on new (expensive) devices ort platforms or you can offer a good, stable (but still disruptive/innovative) service that will work on a type of device already owned and used by millions of people. This also applies to the whole WiFi/Wimax debate. The logic is obvious.... E.

I agree with you. It wouldn't make any sense to go straighti nto competition with the iPhone this close after it's release. But give the hype a while to calm down, I don't think the sales of iPhones will be as good as predicted and Google may learn a thing or two. Then they'll release it.

Nice points there Damien, certainly got me thinking. You think FON would offer free wi-fi to phones via google?
