So, really what you're starting to see is the emergence of a strong Linux ecosystem in the Smart Phone world. But not many people would argue that this is a bad thing. Contrarily, most would argue that this demonstrates the power and diversity of ...

Good points. When I think about it, it would be nice to be able to carry over apps to whatever mobile OS or device you fancy, at the time. Not being able to do that does keep people tied to any one particular OS, if they've spent tons of money on apps and games.
