Android's Next Big Bet? Phones Under $100

The following video is from The Motley Fool's weekly Tech Review, in which host Chris Hill talks all things tech with Fool analysts Eric Bleeker and Lyons George.

While still only a rumor, it seems that Google may be looking toward the release of a low-end Android phone, coming in under the $100 price point. In this segment, our analysts discuss why this would be an important move for Google that could sacrifice some profit for the sake of market share in emerging markets, and why the Android operating system itself would make it very challenging for Google to get much below the $100 mark.

This is news? You can purchase several different android phones, full price, some running 4.0+, others running 2.3+, through Virgin Mobile... admittedly for the low end market, but its right here in the USA.
