How Much Is Google Really Spending?

This will be a short blog.

Has anyone else noticed that google is using adwords extensively to pimp the nexus one? They must be spending a fortune in lost revenue from other ad sources. Since they don't have to pay for those ads I wonder if even they have an accounting of how much they are spending on this thing. At first I thought the nexus one looked interesting but...

T-Mobile only
No Exchange support
weird app space restrictions
and from what I've read poor touch screen keyboard

On the plus side:

Nice screen
Solid camera with flash
really fast processor

With this kind of marketing muscle it's probably just a matter of time before it gets wide adoption but I suspect it's still a couple years away from being really good.
