The interwebs have been a buzzing today with news of the Google Phone, a.k.a. the HTC Nexus One, getting FCC approval.  The Google Phone is an unlocked, carrier unbranded device, made by HTC to the exact specifications of Google and will be sold only by Google through various retail outlets.

The Google Phone, essentially,  should run Android exactly the way Google intends for Android to be run.  This makes me wonder…  Will the Google Phone and its future iterations will get a bit of preferential treatment from Google in the way of features and functionality as Android evolves?
