On January 5, Google released its Nexus One smart phone manufactured by a Taiwanese firm to Google specification.  It is available with T-Mobile service.

Why did Google release the new phone?  It is trying to grab a significant stake in the mobile market.  Industry experts have said that the future of online advertising might rest with mobile phones.

The Google phone sells (with a two year plan) for $179 compared to the iPhone at $199.  It is estimated to have 20,000 applications compared to the iPhone 100,000.

There is a good article in the Los Angeles Times business section.
