Well, all the hype over the "GPhone" has shown to be misplaced. The announcement by Google today is showing to be a bigger play. Huge. This is why Google bought Android and locked Andy Rubin into the chambers of the new DeathStar a couple years ago. Google wants to dominate the next dominant platform of the Internet.

Several months ago my friend brought a great opportunity for Google to acquire major handset manufacturer, but they passed so any idea of them going into the mobile phone space dissipated for me. Also I knew from my friend at a VC firm, who was looking to invest into Android before Google acquired them, that Rubin had a grand vision for his company.

I wonder how Google's advertising system will play into all of this? :)
