LG to pre-install Google apps on its phones

Google pre-installed on LG

Google and LG have reached a deal to pre-install software on the latter company's phones, says Reuters. Beginning in the second quarter of this year, services such as Maps, Gmail and Blogger will be hardwired into at least 10 different handsets, in theory reducing bandwidth demands when users go searching for data. The deal bolsters speculation that Google's recent hires were not to build its own cellphone, but rather to extend its reach into the mobile realm, where both connections and awareness of Google may be limited.
