    This clearly shows that jumping on to a OS available to all manufacturers will not help maintain good profit margin in the long run. All the OEMs from Asia will come in and start a war killing each other and only few will survive in the end with wafer thin margins.
    In the long run, having your own software platform is the only way a mobile phone company can differentiate itself from others and be in a leadership position is to have own OS. Of course this is a challenging and risky path and has execution risks.

    Motorola killed the Xoom with its outrageous price. $899 is not acceptable for a tab.

    Like I said in the other thread, for all we know they're creating another OS, so on top of us already being able to choose hardware, we can choose the OS. Moto has made a lot of dough from Android. Keep that in mind.

    Sounds like Motorola. The sh*t they do. Verizon helped bring them out of the water
    and they repaid them by putting 512MB of RAM on the Bionic as opposed to 1GB RAM
    on the Atrix for ATT. They lock their bootloaders so users can't do anything past
    putting a ROM on the device. And they make smug comments to consumers on
    Facebook. Basically telling someone to go F themselves if they don't like phones with
    locked bootloaders. Doesn't surprise me in the least that they'd have their own OS
    in the works.

    You act like they're bad for that?

    People flash kernels try to overclock, etc. etc. brick phones and then call in for warranty exchanges or bring the phone back to the carrier and tell them it was DOA. That costs a lot of money. Go to XDA-Developers, it seems like the entire Android community is 99% behind insurance fraud and lies. That's why they lock the bootloaders. If you want a development device, buy a Nexus One/Nexus S or go to another manufacturer who wants to deal with that crap.

    And your bitterness over the spec difference between the Bionic and ATRIX 4G has nothing to do with it. That was probably more on Verizon than Moto. Carriers have lots of powers when it comes to the specs/features in their devices. You seem to not know this, and just blame the manufacturers for everything...
