LXer: When open phones meet closed minds

Published at LXer:

One of the discrepancies in the reputation the US has as a tech innovator is the perception that it has lagged behind Europe when it comes to mobile telephony. As one critic said rather sarcastically about this lack of progress: "Ten years and all we have to show is ring tones." The first sign of change was the 31 July announcement by the FCC that licensees will be required "to allow customers, device manufacturers, third-party application developers and others to use or develop the devices and applications of their choosing." The second aspect of this change is the availability of open phones. Not only are the phones open, but their operating systems are open too, running Linux.
