Google grabs ICOA WiFi hotspot specialist [Update: Or maybe not]

Google has snapped up ICOA Inc., a WiFi and wired broadband hotspot specialist providing internet access at airports and other public locations, in what could be another play to bypass traditional carriers.

So appealing, in fact, that it's hard to escape the feeling that the DNA, not LG's handset, should've been the new Nexus.
