Google has thrown their hat in the ring. We’ll find out sometime in the first quarter of next year if they will end up winning in the auction. For the next few months, the internet will be rampant with rumors and conjectures regarding what Google would plan to do with the spectrum should they win. Here is something that I see being a distinct possibility if they do.
I end up with a second mobile device complimenting the handset I would use to send and receive calls. On this second handset, I do everything but place calls. I get weather, traffic, mapping, emails, documents, and of course, news. I also monitor my auctions, make online purchases, chat through Google Talk, and browse the internet. All this while receiving targeted ads designed around my usage. And for free. Who’s with me?
