Google Has Plans to Open R&D Office in Israel

In June, we blogged that Google planned to open a business office in Israel. Today, news that Google is in the process of also opening an R&D center there.

A story in The Marker Online (an Israeli business newspapers) says that's what Sergey Brin told the paper at the World Economic Development Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Israel has a very active IT seen.

For example, well-known vertical search company that's based Israel is Answers.com. Thank you (Todah robah, as they say in Hebrew) to Uri at the ICT blog for the tip.
