Google just gave everyone at the Google I/O show at Moscone a free Android phone with Cupcake and unlimited 3G data for a month.  Some observations:

  • We are going to the next Google I/O show
  • Tmobile service in the Bay area is going to suck for the next month
  • Google is probably helping Tmobile unload extra inventory before the next round of Android phones show up
  • Hopefully Apple takes a page from this playbook.  Those lame promotions with AT&T aren’t doing it for us.    Anyone got an extra WWDC ticket to spare?

Update, it looks like Google is giving away the G2s…before they even hit the shelves. That is a smooth move Google.
