Apple "[Ninjawords] is a terrific app - pretty much exactly what I've always wanted in an iPhone dictionary, and, yes, with both a better user experience and better dictionary content than the other low-cost dictionaries in the App Store. But Ninjawords for iPhone suffers one humiliating flaw: it omits all the words deemed "objectionable" by Apple's App Store reviewers, despite the fact that Ninjawords carries a 17+ rating. Apple censored an English dictionary. A dictionary. A reference book. For words contained in all reasonable dictionaries. For words contained in dictionaries that are used every day in elementary school libraries and classrooms."

More so than Android?

Well, you are right - Android is open, but I don't think it's mature enough yet. The devices which are sold preinstalled with Android are scarce. One day it will be a real alternative. Let's hope sooner than later.

BTW, what's the situation with S60? Especially after this headline: http://www.osnews.com/story/21949/Symbian_S60_UI_is_dead

I recall that they used to have some kind of license as well, but I think it's not relevant anymore.
