PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It all started with Apple/TechCrunch blogger M.G. Siegler making a huge fuss over something he didn't understand, and while that in and of itself isn't particularly interesting, one of the outcomes of this little internet drama is a comment on Google+ (the tenth one) that so perfectly encapsulates just how important Android is for the world that I felt the need to share it with you. It's the holiday season after all.

"Free with a contract" ? Yes, of course... What kind of contract, exactly ? How much does it cost a month ?

Don't believe that carriers can make hundreds of euros magically disappear. Phones cost money, even if they cost carriers a tiny bit less because they buy in bulk. "Smartphone" contracts costing €40 a month is what makes iPhones and other Nexuses *seem* so cheap. They aren't.

(Disclaimer : I buy my phones unlocked, with the cheapest available contract that fits my needs.)
