    Talks are very, very preliminary according to reports but it could be an interesting combination. Google has mobile products (Nexus Line) and the #1 mobile OS in the country (by marketshare) in Android, having their own carrier network, or at least a very strong piece of a joint venture would complete the tri-fecta and completely take 3rd party carrier control out of their products. Of course is could alienate the big guys (AT&T, VZW, etc.) and force them away from featuring Android devices, but that may be risky for them as well. Dish still has to get FCC Approval for their plans (whatever they are) for the spectrum with Sprint and others trying to derail it but the possibilities are interesting.

    They are definitely not messing around.

    Is this finally going to clear the way for Dish to offer a realistic "Triple Play" package of TV, voice and data? I'd definitely be all over that.

    I sure could use a killer WISP out here in the boonies.
