Sprint in talks with Google on mobile apps: source | Technology | Reuters

Sprint in talks with Google on mobile apps: source | Technology | Reuters: "NEW YORK (Reuters) - Sprint Nextel Corp, the No. 3 U.S. mobile service, is in talks to put applications from Web search leader Google Inc on its cell phones, a person familiar with the matter said on Wednesday. Google is in talks with some of the largest U.S. wireless carriers to make a deeper move into the mobile industry, an area it views as key to future growth."

Helge: Google moves from Web to Mobile and plans to cover them both. Still no news about the gPhone. Google is organizing to improve the social media Orkut. What are we going to see or hear before the end of this year?

U.S. wireless operators have been spending billions of dollars to expand their services to mobile Web surfing and entertainment, aiming to boost revenue by enticing consumers to use their phones for more than just talking.

Helge: We need better mobile phones with bigger displays and useful keyboards. The post-PC isn't here yet.
