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.

However, it's good to hear that in some countries things are different, even if I wonder why and how the carriers are subsidizing any phone. Are your contracts so expensive or what?

Is it hard to imagine that your carriers just don't give you a very good deal? (say, they might be even ~cooperating, colluding in a cartel way)

BTW, most of the 5+ billion mobile subscribers own their phones, and are on prepaid - no contract. That alone makes your market a bit atypical.

Also, two Opera reports:

...in both of them US turns out to be most expensive.
