    Where the Sakura grows
    Good opinion article and very true. It's sad that OEM/carriers feel the need to 'differentiate' their products to make it stand out from the competitors. At the end of the day, these 'differentiations' are really the same. They are nothing but bloatwares. *blah*.


    Well what if the trend for some OEMs to continue locking their phones? Like having an encrypted bootloader on the Milestone and Droid X that have not been broken yet :( I forget what HTC model also has some kind of lock down on it as well.

    I just want my vanilla Android (without root). I'm following the rumors on the 'Samsung Nexus Two' and seeing where that goes.
