Google’s ongoing court battle with Oracle has revealed some interesting details about the early days of Android. Bryan Bishop of The Verge has been reporting from the courtroom and shared a bunch of new documents which Google released today.

Among the more interesting tidbits are that Google wanted to subsidize a $9.99 unlimited data plan with T-Mobile, Google wanted to sell 10 million Android tablets and have 33% market share in 2011, and Google thought a touchscreen could not replace physical buttons back in 2007. Hit up the source link for the full coverage of Oracle vs. Google.

The mobile world looks much different than it did back in 2006, but damn would I like a $9 unlimited data plan.
