Google SIM Cards Found Lurking in Spain

Google-branded SIM cards are being tested on the Nexus S in Spain, hinting at the possibility of a dedicated network from the creator of Android. Google currently offers VoIP calls and text messages through their Voice service, but expanding into a full-fledged carrier would be a massive step up—but not entirely unprecedented. Google is field testing their own ultra-high speed fiber internet service in Kansas City, and is looking to offer similar service in other parts of the country.

If Google were to offer their own cell service, they would likely piggy back off of current networks since implementing infrastructure across an entire country requires massive amounts of time and money.
