More coming from Google and Vodafone?

Google launches Google Talk for Blackberry in the spring - IM (as well as Gmail) on the go. Navigation will also be really easy, after downloading Google Local for mobile.

So far, it's text only, and there is no interoperability with AIM yet. But I suppose a Skype/E-Plus sort of deal will follow. reports, pointing to Radiocor, that FastWeb is talking to Vodafone (and 'other mobile operators') about launching converged services, in response to TI/TIM.

Vodafone works with BT in BT Fusion - will there be more alliances? In most countries (apart from Britain) Vodafone would be relegated to working with altnets, like FastWeb. That leaves plenty of room for speculation.
