Much a'twitter today about a possible Google phone — not just another Android "with Google" phone like the various existing models from HTC, Motorola, and Samsung, but a phone solely branded and sold by Google. TechCrunch has reported that the phone will be made by HTC and sold unlocked (that is, direct to consumers rather than through operator channels) beginning in January 2010.
Will the phone be sold at full retail price, or will it be subsidized?
Such disruptions would clearly be good for customers, since few actually want to make a long term contract commitment and more choice in service will promote competition and more price options. This will be even more true in the long term as operators converge to a single network technology (LTE).
