PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Motorola is apparently sticking to its Android guns for the foreseeable future. Not in its future? Microsoft's Windows Phone 7. Christy Wyatt, corporate vice president of software and services for Motorola, laid it out quite plainly for the press at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week. 'I don't envision us using Microsoft,' she said. 'I would never say never but it's not something we're entertaining now. We're the only vendor who is 100% Android.'"

I don't use Android, can't afford it. Just wondering. What would be wrong with Moto or someone giving vanilla android? I mean no one else is doing that. As far as I know. Besides the google ones. This would be a range which gets updates as soon as google releases them and be better specd than the google ones.

ZTE is offering vanilla Android on their phones. As does most of the carriers for whom ZTE brands it.

I have a vanilla Android from ZTE Blade (2.1 officially, 2.2 coming and now I have custom rom for 2.2 because tethering) and it only had a carrier boot screen. And it is unlocked from the beginning.

Nothing bad to say because 2 euro (about 2.5 dollars) a month for unlimited speed and amount (phone supports 7.2Mbits download, but with 3G modem I can get 14Mbits download speeds and 5.26 uploads).

I would not touch at all to any customized Android phone if I would not have a garantee that I can pick a vanilla android GUI and install any other what I want.
