Re: [newtech-1] first videos of iPhone killer - Android. full screen

So will Google come out with a phone..or just release an OS/Platform?

I think if they came out with an OS and a free phone, they would gain

are glued to Google Apps now..it would make a sense. An ad-supported
free cellphone on the plan of their choice..who wouldn't use that?
