    Now, that's a pretty amazing Holiday gift to give your employees... Google is reportedly giving away a free customized Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone to their employees. As you can see in the pic above, the phone doesn't have any Verizon, or even Samsung logo on the back. Instead, it seems to be sporting a smattering of mobile icons covering its backside. So far, it has been confirmed in their London and Zurich offices, but there has been no confirmation elsewhere. Still, knowing the way Google usually does things, it wouldn't be a stretch to speculate that this will likely be company-wide.

    What do you guys think of this? Does it make you wish you were an employee at Google, beyond all the other perks of course?
