    [Rumor] Google and Dish Already Developing Wireless Service Plans for 2013

    Just this morning we reported that Google and Dish were in casual talks to start a wireless service. This afternoon we have a new rumor suggesting that Google and Dish are actually much farther along than that. In fact, this new "intel" suggests they are deep into the planning stages and intend to roll-out some form of wireless service as early as next year.

    According to the info, Google's intention is to take on the big wireless carriers like Verizon and AT&T by going after them indirectly. Apparently Google wants to utilize the wireless spectrum from a deal with Dish Network to offer VoIP wireless services for all data, voice and texting. Supposedly, one of the big reasons Google wants to do this is because they intend to launch Project Glass/Google Goggles next year and they want total control of the network for that gear. It would also be a huge side benefit to be able to use their own network for all of their own Nexus devices.

    Here's a quote with a few last details,

    Dish has previously said on numerous occasions that it would like to build a wireless network with the wireless spectrum it has acquired since 2008, but the company wants a partner to help fulfill this endeavor. As the Wall Street Journal noted in its report from yesterday, Dish Chairman Charlie Ergen said potential partners include companies that would like to be in the industry and currently don’t have a wireless sector.

    The chairman would not comment on Google specifically when discussing potential partners. However, as we noted, our sources said partnership plans between the two companies regarding a wireless network are already well underway.
    Wow! Talk about a geek wishlist. Not only would we have Nexus devices using a Google controlled VoIP network, we would also have Google Goggles as well. Of course, take this report at "face value" for now. This report is uncorroborated by any other sources at this point, so it could be simply a nerd-bloggers fantasy spewed onto the web for all of us to drool over. Still, we have seen stranger things in this industry. Imagine what a shakeup this would be. It would probably face a number of huge regulatory hurdles as well...

    The only possible problem would be lag time, but it certainly would be a big deal for many people. I hope AT&T stays out of it.
