Was speculating that T-Mobile’s Android phone will not allow third party apps ( just like iPhone ) and the developer from a former T-Mobile developer, Shane Isbell, chimed in and confirmed it:


I have nothing but respect for Mr. Isbell, and his SlideMe project looks cool, but his comment confirms that T-Mobile plans to fork Android, no independently developed third party apps, no VoIP, nothing – just the same old crap ( .00 ringtones, no open web access ).

Proof positive More speculation, a week before the big press announcement, that the mobile carriers are not, repeat NOT, using Android to provide better service at all. They are just using it to save money on OS licensing fees and aren’t even going to pass that savings onto the Consumer.

I also fault Google for collusion and reject all the talk of "openness", " a revolution" and every other catch phrase that has been surrounding Android – it was all a bunch of BS to cover up the fact that T-Mobile is just up to its usual crimes against the Consumer.

"Open Source" my azz! "Do no evil"? Yeah, right. By giving T-Mobile Android, Andy Rubin just unleashed all new kinds of evil.
