The idea that Google will go up against major mobile phone vendors such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson and Samsung is falling out of favour, but analysts are still coming up with ideas about what the search giant may be planning for the telephony market.

"I could see them put out a phone with VoIP and a good Web browser, then make money through search-based ads like they do now on desktops."
