Even though their conditions weren't completely met, Chris Sacca, Google's VP of special projects, says they are still interested in taking part in the auction.

The FCC set the ground for a bidding war between incumbents like these companies and a possible new entrant like Google. Other companies that are mentioned in connection with a possible bid include Yahoo Inc. (YHOO), eBay Inc. (EBAY) and Intel Corp. (INTC).

"There will definitely be a new entrant in the auction, I don't know if they'll succeed. There's an opportunity for an incumbent to dominate the bidding and keep out a new entrant," Sacca said.

I hadn't heard that Ebay, Yahoo and Intel are also interested in the auction as well -- it should be interesting to see what the landscape looks like after all the dust has settled.
