From Business Week Google buys Android for its mobile arsenal
Think of the revenue Google could generate with MOBILE KEYWORDS
In what could be a key move in its nascent wireless strategy, Google has quietly acquired startup Android Inc., BusinessWeek Online has learned
One source familiar with the company says Android had at one point been working on a software operating system for cell phones
"Windows, we don't need no stinkin Windows"...I wonder if Google ever uttered that sentence.
"Wireless is the next frontier in search," says Scott Ellison, analyst at research outfit IDC
A couple questions for Pondering Primate readers:
Would you download a Google toolbar for your mobile? Instead of going to www.google.com, you had a little search box that you could type a search query in.
What if that search window incorporated GPS into your search query?
What would Google have to offer you, to make this part of your mobile screen?
Do you see where this is going? When you agree to download this mobile toolbar, you have given Google (and their clients) permission to advertise to you.
Think of taking Google's keyword revenue model and DOUBLING IT by offering a mobile version.
Would love comments on this one....
Google would probably have the best mobile analytics database..
