Google has developed a prototype cell phone that could reach markets within a year, and plans to offer consumers free subscriptions by bundling advertisements with its search engine, e-mail and Web browser software applications, according to a story published today in The Wall Street Journal.

Now, I"m not sure exactly what this is going to mean for us the consumers, but it could be interesting. I know, Google has it's fingers in too many pots, but still intersting. Lord knows it has to be better than the iPhone.
