“Google Sim Card” – Google To Launch Cellular Service?

After acquiring mobile devices company Motorola Mobility, Google is now looking forward to a new venture which might possibly be the business of providing users with cellular services. Yes, you have heard it right. Google might soon launch cellular services in Spain in association with existing cellular operators like Movistar, Orange & Vodafone.

We can not confirm if this is actually true unless we hear something from Google in the first place. Whatever be it, the idea of Google of Google having a cellular network sounds pretty interesting as now they already have their own device manufacturing unit in terms of Motorola Mobility, own operating system in terms of Android and having their own cellular network to power the cellular service will only bring Google more control over users’ mobile / cellular activities!

Update: Spanish site Xatakandroid claims that these images are probably fake and have been made by a group in order to create rumors in the media.

A number of people associated with Google (including engineers and co-workers) have received a starter pack which has a Nexus S testing sim-card with other documentation. Each sim-card is associated with various operators such as Orange and Vodafone and this gives us a feeling that Google has plans of becoming a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO).

A MVNO does not have its own infrastructure but uses the infrastructure laid by other operators to run its telecom operations. Google already has a massive infrastructure around it’s Google Voice product which lets users make free calls to each other within US. Shown below is the package which contained the Google SIM card.

    1. Hey, can you provide the links to the pages you got these screenshots from? The URLs in the browser bars of the above screenshots redirect to the main page for some reason

  1. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  2. I found your website perfect for my needs. It helped me, and I’ll certainly install what you recommend. You have something good going here, keep it up!

  3. People are yours alright! . We a minimum of must get these men and women stealing pictures to get started on running a blog! They almost certainly just did a picture investigation and grabbed them. They search very good however!

  4. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  5. Hi :)How are things going? I see that you are still pumping this site up. How did the last Google update affect your site? It seems that your blog is one of the strongest in the current SERP’s! Keep that up and don’t forget to msg me when you catch some free time :) C ya soon! ;)
