anybody who has been paying attention for the last two years knows that the 'gphone' is an ti omap730 based linux 2.6 system. it'll be a stretch, but they just might make it work with the 850.

As for the business model, all you're seeing in the press is guesses that google will simply move it's intarweb business model to the telephony space.

i wouldn't count on it.
