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.

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