By mistake I typed googlr.com & it got redirected to google.com

Just wondering how many such spelling mistakes does google handle?

Google's spelling correction is based on user search queries. The most popular spelling is the "correct" spelling. Search engines know more about spelling variation than anyone else!

[put at-character here]Brian – I think he meant he typed the wrong domain name in his browser and it redirected to google.com. So how many incorrectly spelled domain names does Google own?

[put at-character here]Dhananjay – Your phone is telling you that you will have to have a data connection to connect to the Gmail service on your mobile phone. If you don't have a data plan with your current mobile phone provider, then you won't be able to connect to the Gmail service. If you do have a data plan with your mobile phone contract, I would follow whatever the FAQ says on Gmail Mobile.

According to the above they don't own htttp://gooooogle.com yet it redirects to google.ie for me.

Ooo wait found another of Philipp's posts
googel.com
wwwgoogle.com
foofle.com
goolge.com
googel.de

not too shore about:
googlee.com
gppgle.com
(they go to Google English but stay on the domains rather than going to google.com)

[ blogoscoped.com/archive/2003_1 ...]
P.S. Quite a few of the descriptions of content are out dated, eg. Google's got some more of the domains.

I think that post from 2003 might have a typo...

<< # www.goolge.com – Google itself.
# www.google.com – Hit-the-bear-and-win spam. >>
blogoscoped.com/archive/2003_1 ...

Perhaps those two are the wrong way round? ;-)

They must have many domains, not only because of typos but because of possible fraud...
