PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The company revealed Thursday that it will delay publication of the Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) source code for the foreseeable future - possibly for months. It's not clear when (or if) the source code will be made available. The decision puts Android on a path towards a "draconian future" of its own, in which it is controlled by a single vendor - Google.

Well, here's the thing it was much cheaper for me to do a subsidised plan on att than a non subsidised plan on t-mobile.

Android phones are now on every carrier. Having only one phone that only works on one carrier, just puts nokia in a really bad spot. Allowing users to choose the service they use for your phones is a much better business strategy.

Side note: the N900 isn't offered any more on nokia's USA website. Its only offers symbian based phones now.
