This Operating System would use Linux as their base,which could be an competition for Symbian and other windows based Operating Systems.Its Interesting to use Linux as its not developed any market base still now.

This would be interesting as not only consumers would get a phone connected well with Google's successful services, but also as manufacturers and operators have another revenue stream.
