Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) is closing in on the unveiling of its much publicized wireless service but if latest reports are anything to go by, then its usage could be limited substantially. People familiar with the matter say the service will only work with Nexus brand smartphone while locking out other phones using the search giant’s Android operating system according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s wireless service is designed to allow for the switching between Wi-Fi and cellular networks, when one is making a voice call. The claims if true would mean that millions of people on other smartphones and other platforms would be locked out from the service. The latest Nexus 6 smartphone designed by Google and Motorola will be the first one to use the service, which will also not work with older Nexus devices according to the sources.
Earlier in the Week, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) head of product, Sundar Pichai confirmed that plans were in place for the unveiling of the wireless service. Which is an indication that the company is willing to expand beyond selling services? Pichai had stressed that the service would not operate large scale, and restricting it to a single device fits the threshold
Google is not looking to become a wireless company and will consequently partner T-Mobile US Inc (NYSE:TMUS) and Sprint Corp (NYSE:S) for the service. The working of the wireless service requires close coordination between smartphone hardware and software, something that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) hopes to attain with its Nexus program. The search giant has been using Nexus to show off new technology while also influencing how companies in its Android ecosystem develop future devices and features.
Motorola, an acquisition of Google, is not new to the working of Wireless services as its three handsets; Moto X, G and E already support services from Republic Wireless that use Wi-Fi on Sprint’s network. Motorola is reported to have worked with Republic Wireless in developing a hopping software that is distinct to Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL)’s wireless project.
