well only the xoom tablets have the movie functionality now i think, anyway...once it comes to 2.2, i'm sure the same restrictions would be placed on the phones...don't see any reason why it wouldnt...
of course there will be a workaround found, and android users will continue to pirate! lol
Haha....Seems like it would be a lot of work to pirate a movie via a smartphone, and 480p at that! I'm sure it's easier to just go find a torrent....
I mean, I can buy a HD blu-ray R/W drive for $200 (probably less) and software for about $50 and pirate super-def movies to my heart's content.
I'm betting the movie industry pressured Google into doing that. They still seem to think they have some control over piracy.
I don't think it'll matter the devs will figure out a way to misrepresent the device. Plus it won't affect devices that won't upgrade to ice cream as in older models. Besides, how sad that (for once) we try to do things the right way (not downloading torrents and paying our subscription fees, buying expensive low battery toys) and google wants to play "rough". Meh, here's me crossing fingers.
