Google TechCrunch held a little in-promptu poll a few days ago, asking its readers why they chose to go with Android instead of something else. Most people stated they choose Android because of "openness". The author of the article calls this "a load of crap", arguing that because carriers can do with Android as they so desire, the reality now is that Android isn't open. Clearly, the author doesn't get openness.

Quite interesting ;)

Here in my country (Bolivia), all the iPhone devices I see are jailbroken because there is no carrier supporting it officially.

And don't forget the Playstations, Xboxen and so many other things that you get "chipped" from the store in that lovely country of ours!
Btw, I thought I was the only OSNews reader from Bolivia. (Even though I now live somewhere else)
