Google has been a medium of services throughout its existance. The fact that it is trying to play an actual *product* in a competitive market is nothing short of terrifying.

Don't you mean thin Philip ?

"The Google Phone, designed by Samsung, is a very thing and stylish handset with a large screen and a QWERTY keypad so that it provides a real internet experience."

The style doesn't look Google-esque. Then again they didn't design it.

"Furthermore, she mentioned that Google's mobile skunkworks were designed to make their way into developing countries, suggesting that this may not be the Samsung sourced, iPhone-killing monster we'd been getting an earful about as of late"

Excellent strategy by Google. But how much revenue potential (through ads?) is their in the developing countries (putting the BRIC – Brazil, Russia, India and China aside).
