Will it ever come to Germany, though?

From what I gathered when I read about Google Voice and it's chances to ever making it to Germany, forwarding costs for calls and services are way too high over here to make it a viable option at this point. Ans the german telcos and mobile providers will be up in arms and fight it tooth and nail unless they can stake out their claims as well, turning Google Voice into another premium service with additional fees, which kind of contradicts it's (current) purpose.
