PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Here's the dirty little secret about Android: After all the work Apple did to get AT&T to relinquish device control for the iPhone and all the great efforts Google made to get the FCC and the U.S. telecoms to agree to open access rules as part of the 700 MHz auction, Android is taking all of those gains and handing the power back to the telecoms.

To make an iPhone truly yours you have to jailbreak it. With an android you have to root it. 6 of one and a half dozen of the other.


Eh, not quite... the big difference is that in android, there's an option to enable installing apps from outside sources, and you don't have to root for that. Granted, that doesn't give you access to EVERYTHING, but it's a lot more open than the iPhone out of the box.
