Wall Street Journal: Google Has Even Bigger Plans for Mobile Phones

This morning’s Wall Street Journal summarizes the various elements of Google’s mobile strategy:

 

  • Developed Android software for mobile phones.
  • Made Google applications — including email, chat and mapping — available on cellphones.
  • Sells advertisements for certain Web sites accessed by cellphone.
  • Enables users to do Web and business searches with cellphone browsers, by text message or with a call.
  • Is testing an advanced wireless network at Google headquarters.
  • Operates a free Wi-Fi network in Mountain View, Calif.
  • Expected to bid for wireless spectrum in a January FCC auction.

What it means: very serious, multi-prong wireless strategy. Google definitely sees the opportunity in mobile. BTW, I find myself blogging more and more about mobile internet. This must mean something…
