PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "What are the chances that we'll see something with the finesse of the One X with stock software down the road? 'The Nexus devices are Google’s lineup,' explains Kodera, 'but in general, we're very proud of HTC Sense, and we'd like to continue shipping it on every device.' Not exactly encouraging." Big letdown. Not unexpected, but a letdown still. I will never again buy a non-Nexus device.

The problem of customers being forced to choose between a limited range of (locked) phones selected by the carrier is mainly an American and UK problem.

How good that Apple is there to fix that issue... oh wait! Apple is the one that is extending that practice outside of US to countries that have long stopped having locked devices(A contract with an ETF is good enough in reality)

Also, stop with the subsidies! You get a loan on your device. You get a higher priced contract for longer - you get a higher loan. Terminate your contract early - pay off the difference.

Hiding the price of a phone behind - $200 now and $90 for the next 24 months isn't a positive thing for a free market.
