Google is planning to become a wireless carrier | Android and Me. Obviously, its failure to succeed as a device manufacturer hasn't dampened Google's enthusiasm to move into new markets. News that it is going to use TMobile as a backbone for a new wireless carrier, code named Nova, is making the rounds. I love Google apps, search, Android and its other software and Internet products. However, unless it acquires a mobile carrier, I am suspicious of its moving into new areas. I could be wrong, of course. We shall see.
