Verizon becomes open, I think now I will now take Android seriously and look at its SDK. I suspect also half of the skeptic world that did not take it seriously earlier will do now. Inspite of all arguments about how this was different from other reference platforms or earlier efforts it still looked to me as just another reference platform contender. But now Android has actually changed/caused a major economic rift in the value chain the kind an open reference platform always promised to do ( commoditize the core). Pretty cool.
