PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Motorola is apparently sticking to its Android guns for the foreseeable future. Not in its future? Microsoft's Windows Phone 7. Christy Wyatt, corporate vice president of software and services for Motorola, laid it out quite plainly for the press at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week. 'I don't envision us using Microsoft,' she said. 'I would never say never but it's not something we're entertaining now. We're the only vendor who is 100% Android.'"

Carries don't wan't open phones (that can't tether by default for expample) and OEM wan't to be super differentiated by putting crappy skins and crapware ontop of stock Android, which only makes updates more costly and hence unlikely and waters down the otherwise good experience.

I just hope the chip vendors will build generic platforms that some chinese OEM with NO expertise in software will just build and sell (unlocked and unmodified).

It may be not a phone for all the sheeple that get their phone with a contract (or live in a country with no other choice), but it would be great for me. As long as no other good open solution exists.
