Yup. So it don't matter if Windows Phone isn't as much of a money maker. They still win. Ugh....I wonder if the Ubuntu phones will be the true Linux open source phones.

in the Article: Review: LG Optimus F6 for T-Mobile forum

But the F6 has infrared remote! I'm sure once its rooted and all the bloatware removed, it will perform just as good. BTW, have you figured out how to unlock the bootloader of the Optimus L9 P769 T-Mobile phone?

Question. Can the bootloader be unlocked?

Locked Bootloader for P769

in the LG Optimus L9 / Optimus 4G forum

Unfortunately, LG has decided to lock the bootloader and the only way to obtain the token is using UNLOCKABLE firmware which voids the warranty. Easy enough? Nope....the official LG unlock method does not work on certain models shipped with Jelly Bean 4.1.2. Many users say it is hit or miss....that it takes several attepts. Others say that if too many failed attempts occur, the efuse gets blown making the device perma-locked. Ultimately, it's your choice. If you enjoy a good challenge, ...

If you want a good launcher, this does not seem like a wise choice. I can imagine the amount of resources it consumes to provide all of those services. Go with Zeam or, if eye candy with widgets galore is your thing, GO/Next Launcher.

Seems like Google is desperately trying for people to dump Gingerbread....ah, well. I'll be getting my Jelly Bean tablet soon and my upgrade is gonna happen later this year.

in the Article: Windows Phone 8 Devices Will Be Upgradeable forum

"The base code used in Windows Phone 8 is significantly different from that used by Windows Phone 7." And that's why users of WP 7 will not be able to update. I call BS on that one. Remember when they said the same thing about the HTC Wing not being able to run version 6.5? And xda made it happen.

What a Low Response

Only one review and no discussions. That is sad. It's ashame qwerty keyboard phones aren't popular anymore.

May choose this over the Relay

in the LG Optimus L9 / Optimus 4G forum

I'm almost to the point of smashing my still on Froyo Sidekick 4G. I've been comparing prices with my partial discount and this seems to hit the mark. The Relay is just too expensive and it seems Samsung is pretty much ignoring this model too. Sure, I'd love the Nexus 4...buuuut....once again...too expensive. AND hard to find here in T-Mobile Puerto Rico. I'll miss the keyboard but at least LG has a history of awesome dev support over at Cyanogen and xda.

Any Other Devices Getting This Update?

Agreed. I have a Samsung Sidekick 4G and immediately removed the crappy UI in favor of ADW Launcher. I'm hoping to get this device as soon as I get my discount. I just hope Samsung supplies at least one update to it. The Sidekick got forgotten in Froyo land.

I have a Sidekick 4G and because 'ol Sammy refuses to release Gingerbread, I am not able to install CM on it. I hope I don't waste my money like I did with the Sidekick.
