I can see one way SPDY happens: Google supports it on all their servers, and pushes support for it into Chrome/Chromium and, crucially, their mobile browser in Android. Throw on top of that a Google-operated caching proxy service that Android users can use (as transparently as possible, of course!) so that browsing the Internet from your mobile suddenly got 2x - 3x faster without having to upgrade to 4G or what-have-you, and I think you'll see a lot of pressure for others to support SPDY.
Meanwhile, Google laughs all the way to the bank monetizing the extensive marketing data they've collected from these proxies about what people are actually browsing on their Android phones.
Or, am I just extra cynical in the morning?
