PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless All hail the omnipresent people familiar with the matter.This time, these patrons of the internet have told InformationWeek that Motorola is not satisfied with Google's Android, and that the company is working on its own mobile operating system.

All these CEOs shouldn't have read "Differentiate Or Die".
Differentiate on hardware! They should just build the best hardware and keep Android untouched. (I hope) Nobody cares for the crappy addons (crapware) they add to Android. Those just make updates more expensive and take longer (or even make them "impossible")

I really hope some Chinese OEM will build the most easily rooted most generic well-build handsets that can just run pure (mostly FOSS) Android. I don't care if Motorola et al can't compete with those .. I don't own their stock.

I want pure Android with maybe a FOSS-only appstore where apps are written well and vetted for privacy, power consumption etc.

That's what _I_ want.

PS. I would even prefer Meego, but might have to travel to a parrallel universe to get it, so it might not be an option.
