Google's phone should be good

Saturday, November 3, 2007 by Dave Winer.

While I think Google's plan to undermine Facebook was a bad idea that flopped, I think they should be able to design a phone that, like Apple's iPhone, is a necessary accessory for the future-minded geek. Permalink to this paragraph

One of the things we like the most about mobile devices is that they can be used to access Internet applications, but neither the Blackberry or the iPhone have hit the sweet spot with web access, imho -- but Google's design process should yield something not ony usable but uniquely powerful. Combining search with email, maps and news is something they should be able to make work better than their competitors because they've done it so well on the web. Permalink to this paragraph

When news organizations see what Google's up to, I suspect they will be more interested in what we've been doing with the NY Times.  Permalink to this paragraph

And btw, I'm not selling my Apple stock.  Permalink to this paragraph
