Also want to sell phones where the higher capacity is more expensive, like Apple. And, I did mention Google's reasons were utter crap. I just see them locking down more and more. UI aside, their recent updates to their apps keep removing important functions. They are already attempting the 'walled garden' approach with their theme regarding the Play Store and the other Google apps carrying the same UI. The only difference is that it resembles more WebOS and Windows 8 and lacks the fake leather stitching of Apple's UI.
