    Well they might as well claim them just like B&N claims the Nook. Same concept right?

    Wait...you mean VZW didn't invent cellphones? They didn't create the Bionic? Surely you must be mistaken...I mean they have their logo right next to my mouthpiece on my phone all fancy like. I'm in shock!!! The world is a lie!!!!:icon_eek:

    Pretty much. Imagine how bad it would be for VZW if Motorola decided they were done selling phones on their network until vzw changed its tune. Man that would put then in their place.

    Sent from my frozenly delicious bionic.

    I was poking fun of an Obama quote....

    Edit: I am NOT trying to turn this into a political thread. I'm not here to discuss politics or whether I like/hate Obama. It was a joke. Take it as such. If you didn't like it you don't have to laugh. :)

    I find it very interesting that a roomful of VZW Execs find it necessary to develop counter proposals at all. Not the same old arrogance I'd come to expect from a carrier that has always (in the past) behaved as if they called the shots...all the shots.

    Just from an outsider's view, looks like they recognize there's a new player in the game. If you think of it as some kinda barter, Google/Moto laid out their stance, now VZW prepares theirs and through various negotiations, eventually a deal is done.

    Formerly VZW displayed NO interest in un-locking anything...looks like they now see they're gonna have too fall back from that stance.

    A good sign for us consumers, yes?

    Doesn't matter. If they fall back only by charging 20/30 bucks a month, most ppl can't afford that extra charge on a monthly basis on top of thier already high bill. Thus they get what they want anyway. Not to mention deterring ppl from developing. Samurai shouldn't have to pay an extra $30/mo to be able to contribute to the community.

    I agree. I have a feeling that GooMoto is in no mood for counters at this point....... Wouldn't surprise me if this ended in a creation of a GooMobile or GooWireless.

    Am I the only one who keeps seeing the Pointy Haired Boss from Dilbert every time I hear about VZW and these ridiculous counter proposals?

    If things come to blows, hopefully Samsung would also follow suit.. if they did it would be a nice horse-kick in the pills for VZW.

    Interesting. But none of this news today really wows me like on Friday. Any idea how long the negotiations will last?
