I think (like some others have said) that the entire phone is BS. Google handed out G1 phones to their employees for Christmas, and this is nothing more than the same. Its basically an unlocked HTC Passion phone (GSM version) handed out for OS testing (2.1). What better way to test a major update to your OS than to hand it out to your own employees? In my opinion: There is no "Google" phone per say allowing you to use VOIP for all your voice and data needs. No carrier would allow that on their network, and would go out of their way to keep it off. Why would they allow a device on their network that would be nearly half the price as a current smartphone plan? It just has to do with logic here folks. Everyone.. and I mean everyone would get the phone, and the cell company would lose so much revenue it would be scary. If they do allow such a VOIP phone on their networks (cell companies) they will jack up the ala-carte prices to compensate for the Google prices. No way... no how... any cell provider allows a phone that simply requires a data connection to use all of its services. It goes against everything a cell phone company uses to make money. Until I see this become a reality, im calling BS.
