    With the wraps off the Google (GOOG -0.4%) phone, Walt Mossberg weighs in, calling it the "bold new face in super-smartphones." Aside from the multiple comparisons of its hardware to the iPhone (AAPL), Dan Frommer says the real difference is how Google flips the purchasing model: phone first, then carriers compete for you, the customer. Paul Kedrosky: Android vs. iPhone echoes Microsoft's (MSFT) earlier battle with Apple on the desktop.

    Summing up and looking ahead for Google (GOOG): A year where the worst thing you can say is that revenue growth stalled in the first quarter isn't too bad. And then, 2010: the year when Google and Microsoft (MSFT) roll up their sleeves and really go to war.

    Microsoft (MSFT) loses an appeal to overturn a $200M patent-infringement ruling (since increased to $290M) over a feature in the company's Word software. Toronto-based I4i prevailed regarding an add-on feature that Microsoft argued was "obscure" and too difficult to quickly remove from Word.
