If Apple felt even remotely threatened by Google then Apple would start marketing it's Iphone to all of the service providers like TMobile and Cricket and such and such. With drm removal software, you can remove drm from itunes

Im looking for a good phone (NOT the Iphone) that's a smartphone, but most of the great ones that I really like dont come out on my service provider (AT&T). Any susgestions? I perfer a full keyboard cause I do a hell of a lot of texting

This is called tying and it's illegal.  Don't confuse lack of enforcement with being legal.

And I have no intent of funding the Deutsche Telekom cartel.

im not able to get either phone at this point so it makes little difference to me. My area is only reliable with sprint and verizon

 

I would love to use an android phone though if they opened up with them

even though Verizon gots a good network they are very restrictive ..... you cant do anything and the way the OS is set up with its menus is in my opinion shitty... and NO SIM card...

 i have verizon and im planning on switching to some android phone carrier.. i highly dought that verizon will get an adroid phone and if they do they will once again restrict it 

 damn you verizon

I really don't see Apple being very threatened by this. Apple only produces the Iphone. And then the Iphone is exclusive to one carrier ATT. I really don't see this as very much of a competition battle. If Apple felt even remotely threatened by Google then Apple would start marketing it's Iphone to all of the service providers like TMobile and Cricket and such and such.

Simply the fact that individuals are creating apps on an open OS means that for every concievable niche there will be a specific application. Each phone has the potential to become very individualized, which is awesome and powerful. Google/T-Mobile provide the canvas, the users make the painting.

Just bought the RAZR2 V8, and I knew this was coming.  But, I'm under my parents plan (I'm in college) so I'll stick with that. I don't really need that mobile of a phoen with all of the features.

That GoCart application sounds pretty awesome actually. If I switch to TMobile to get that phone (and I might) that's something I'd see myself using on a very regular basis
