Google Plan

Google has confirmed for the first time that it plans to offer connectivity directly to mobile users in the U.S., but a senior executive downplayed the competition it would be to major U.S. cellular carriers.

Several reports have said the company is preparing a service that would be offered across an existing cellular network under a Google brand -- a so-called "mobile virtual network operator" or MVNO. But the reports hadn't been confirmed until Sundar Pichai, the company's senior vice president, spoke at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Monday.

"You'll see us announce it in the coming months," said Pichai.

Looks like Google is planning to become as big, and already is as bad, as Microsoft and Apple. Yum. How many tech mega-monopolies do we need. Too many tech oligarchs as is. This government is bought and sold to boot, if mostly for loot and power, both of which can be bolstered through such sales to such companies. Bleh.

Google has their own modular phone.
Need to change simething, say from CDMA to GSM, swap the module, but I'm sure there are others that can be swapped out, I just grabbed two out of the air.

If they get serious, they may buyout the other MVNO operators.
