One can't help but wonder if the recent decisions
regarding the FCC's 700MHz frequency auction
aren't having an effect on Google's desire to bring a WiFi phone to market as quickly as possible. What better way to use the new "open" frequency than to put Google Talk on a device and get it into the hands of customers about to get "choices" for what they're using to ride the celestial-wavelengths? According to sources, a Taiwanese ODM called Wistron NeWeb has entered "design-in development" for phones with Google Talk compatibility. Of course, we've heard similar rumors
before, but the company already makes Skype phones, so moving the technology to Google's implementation of VoIP would
be easy as pie -- and who doesn't like pie?
