It seems that almost any small company can call Asia to make them a smartphone/tablet/laptop according to their specifications that can almost rival the best a huge company like Nokia, Samsung and Apple can do. Sure there will be locked down phones but doesn't this developer think there will be brands that keep it totally open so you can put your own OS on it?
