Google (GOOG) has already conquered the software side of smartphones and now the technology giant is reportedly in talks to take over the airwaves.

Not sure of the validity of the Source, but I figured I ought to share.

How awesome would this be if it were true? drool.gif

If their wireless would be anything like their fiber, then get prepared for fast affordable service, maybe even unlimited data.... Only time will tell, but it won't be a big deal for some time even if true.

...and THAT is why the Nexus 4 has no LTE. It didn't cater to their agenda and planning. I have been seriously contemplating a Nexus 4 with Straight Talk. I'll finish my contract out now and see what they have in the works wink.gif

Sure they'd have to overwater the testsubject for the diarreah benches and the throat will probably bottleneck the bulimia tests.
