Google Phone for Developing Countries

The Spanish Noticias.com quotes Isabel Aguilera, director of Google Spain & Portugal, who says they work on a mobile device that will facilitate access to information in developing countries. Noticias.com doesn't mention other details about the phone, but we can imagine something similar to the One Laptop per Child project.

To make it really easy to find information, the phone should have some speech recognition capabilities, like those used in Google Voice Search, so you wouldn't have to type queries. Google's search interface should also be different and should shift the focus from browsing to retrieving information. Google Maps should be aware about your location. But how to build a cheap phone optimized for Internet applications?
