How Google Will Eat the Mobile Phone System

Google is an advertising corporation. Their whole business model is predicated on breaking down barriers to access--barriers which stop the public from accessing rich internet content plastered with Google's ads. Google wants the mobile communications industry to switch to Version 2, pure bandwidth competition. In fact, they'd be happiest if the mobile networks would go away, get out of the users' faces and hand out free data terminals with unlimited free bandwidth. More bandwidth, more web browsing, more adverts served, more revenue for Google. Simple!
