Lots and lots of T-Mobile web'n'walk marketing in prominent places on the London underground. The Google home page mock-up shown on the handset is very no-nonsense indeed. This takes me back to a time in early cellular history, when a subscriber in the UK could be asked, "What kind of phone do you have?" and would very often answer, "Vodafone," rather than, "Nokia." Few would make that mistake these days - confusing the device with the network. (Incidentally, notice that T-Mobile ensured its logo is larger than that of Google on the ad.) Now, on to content aggregation. Who's my mobile content aggregator? Current answer: Orange World (yuck). Future answer: Me and a bunch of pidgeons. Any bets on when we see GTalk for mobile?
