    @Extrapolateer now taking the advertising into account, what would have been interesting would have been Google finding a way to make this phone free (or at least cheap), supported through advertising. (though I guess then it would have to be under some sort of contract to ensure they pushed enough advertising to offset the cost of the device)

    Good points. In addition, I suspect there would be a political price to pay if the phones were free. Competitors would not be happy. Probably not in Google's long-term interests to bite the hands that help make and market their phones.

    Wouldn't affect those that make the phones... they would still get paid, the consumer cost would just go down based on the ad revenue (much the same way phones are subsidized by contract now). So (in theory) somebody like VZW could pick up part of the subsidy based on what they make on contract, Google picks up a piece based on the ad revenue (with a constant rotating banner on the bottom of the phone), and the consumer would get a "free" phone.
