PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Google is growing increasingly concerned with Samsung's dominance of the Android - and smartphone - landscape. Supposedly, the topic is being openly discussed at Google, and as far as I'm concerned, that's great news.

Fair enough. By why does everyone care about the openness about said project so much?

I understand not like proprietary code, I don't like it when a uncooperative 3rd party for a piece of bespoke software won't give you the source and you actually need to change it.

But when buying a device such as a phone, I can understand not wanting the iOS style of Application control .. but beyond that why worry?

Certain people prefer open.
