PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I have often wondered why there wasn't a flood of Android portable media players - now the WSJ Reports: "With the move, Samsung will round out a series of Galaxy-named gadgets that matches product for product with Apple Inc.'s line of iPods, iPad and iPhone. Samsung will have the Galaxy Player, Galaxy Tab and Galaxy smartphone. All use a variation of Google Inc.'s Android operating system and work with apps developed for it."

So you have a 'laboratory' of half-baked networks running on different standards, making it difficult or impossible to take your phone from one provider to another, and little or no international roaming (and no iPhone) if you use CDMA.

I have five networks based on the same international standard (GSM), that cover my entire country, and I can run my phone on any of them without any difficulty.

Sounds like your precious country needs to try a lot harder. The 1980s called and they want their 'laboratory' back.
