This year, Google workers get phones - The Boston Globe

Perhaps they had surplus inventory, with the rumored G2 supposedly coming soon

Google Inc., owner of the world's most-used search engine, is giving employees mobile phones instead of cash gifts this year as it reins in costs during the recession, according to a person familiar with the matter.

About 85 percent of workers will get a handset powered by Google's Android operating system as a holiday gift, said the person, who asked not to be identified. Google handed out $1,000 cash gifts to most employees last year.
