Google Is Paying Carriers and Phone Makers to Adopt Android
AT&T laughs, Palm sighs
Meanwhile, AT&T has the iPhone which gets continued development and support. I'm pretty sure AT&T is laughing all the way to the bank. I'm willing to bet Verizon, knowing the long-term outlook on Android would drop every pathetic smartphone they sell to be in AT&T's shoes.
Palm is in deep crap, too. Silly them for thinking engineering one of the best smartphone OS's would lead to carriers begging for the phone. Money talks.
