PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless This is fun. The number one iOS carrier duking it out with the company behind the world's most popular smartphone operating system. Last month, Google's lead for the Android Open Source Project, Jean-Baptiste Queru, more or less blamed carriers (see comments) for Android's upgrade woes. Yesterday, AT&T's CEO Randall Stephenson retaliated, blaming Google for the delays. And yes, Google already responded to that, too.

You're right, I don't live in the USA, and don't have much experience with those carriers. I just don't buy into this idea of companies being "bad". They are just organizations attempting to maximize profits for their own gain, the point of capitalism. If you don't like the deal, walk away.

I don't deny for a second that these companies do things we don't like, but nobody makes us buy their products and services. If they are a true monopoly, then that's different maybe.
