Google Grabs One Million Phone Numbers

googlevoice_logo1According to NetworkWorld and ReadWriteWeb, Google has reserved one million phone numbers via Level 3.  NetworkWorld’s John Fontana writes:

Google last month reserved 1 million phone numbers with Level 3, signaling that it may finally be ready to roll out its long-anticipated Google Voice service.

The free service, announced in March, lets users unify their phone numbers, allowing them to have a single number through Google Voice that rings a call through to all their phones.

Sources could not say when the 1 million numbers may be assigned. Level 3 has been supplying Google with phone numbers since the introduction of Google Voice, so the 1 million numbers are an indication Google is close to adding a significant amount of users.”

The question: How will a broader rollout of Google Voice affect/integrate/expand the Android mobile user base?
