Default AT&T: Looking at Google's Android

Over the past several months, quite a few people have begun to doubt Googleís ability to attract a significant number of carriers and handset makers to its Android operating system for cell phones. Well, todayís comments by AT&T at CTIA could change that.


U.S.ís largest wireless service provider, AT&T, has been meeting with Google to discuss the possibility of using Android as the basis of AT&Tís phones. If AT&T follows these words with deeds, that would give Android a huge boost. After all, every operating systemís adoption hinges, in large part, on carriers. And if giant AT&T gives Android a nod, handset makers and other carriers may be more willing to give this new software a second look.


Such a decision could also turn wireless ecosystem upside down. Today, handset makers like Nokia carry a lot of weight in deciding which operating system should go on a particular cell phone model. Perhaps carriers will start to have more influence in these decisions.

I seriously hope Android catches on and all the carriers take notice, I'm tired of the restrictions and lock downs found in lower end phones - something I would expect Android to open up.

Now that Linux is coming out with LiMo, Android might have some serious competition. I guess it's hard to compete with Free, though.

I second that, but my primary concern is which OS will VZW adopt.

Following the company as you do, if they decided to deliver a phone with an open source OS, which would you sau they would have an inclination toward?

I heard Verizon is going for LiMo not Google's Android.
