I've been following the Twitter stream for Google I/O, it's been fun to watch (cool that everyone got a phone).
But why are they giving developers phones? Well, being at Sun, I know the strategy: you capture developers, and many good things flow from this.
And this would be a Big Problem for Google, it seems to me. Why? Because you can't crawl RIAs. You can't add AdSense RIAs. And ads are the cash cow for Google.
