I got the Ryme about a month ago and love it. It currently has android version 2.3.4.Would this be included and what is meant by rooting?
This is good news to me. I am currently using a Blackberry that my firm provides. In March I am eligible to upgrade my phone. I am strongly considering switching to the HTC Evo Shift because it has a keyboard. I assume it runs on the newer system, but will have to check it out.HTC phones will not be banned next yeAr, in fact their sales will likely increase. This ban only applies to models shipped running android 1.6 to 2.2, my phone has been running 2.3.4 since august and all newer models will have that or android version 4.0
Patent in question will be a non-issue on newer models, and is already a non-issue for most android based phones being sold right now.
I think I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with you here, Art. You've made such a broad statement that it is completely indefensible.Not by a long shot. Apple actually innovates and creates. Microsoft is just a software company, and windows is a poor knock-off of the Apple GUI.

Regarding Apple and innovation, Jobs himself said, "Good artists copy, great artists steal. And we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas."
Mac OS is just a Unix based GUI. Sure, the difference between Apple and Microsoft is that Apple markets hardware and software as a unit, and Microsoft markets software almost exclusively (other than some awesome peripherals). But my point is that either one of them would eat you if it could.
Tia,Would this be included and what is meant by rooting?
Exactly where I am. My old AT&T Samsung clamshell was in the process of dying after almost 10 years of use. I went to Best Buy and bought an AT&T Samsung clamshell "Go Phone" for $10, swapped the SIM cards and haven't missed a beat.You know, as much as I love my smart phone, it wouldn't kill me to just have a plain old cell phone. It would cost less, and it would cost less per month.
I believe it's Google that makes the big bucks on Android as both Apple & Microsoft have stated they want to kill it. If they can't make money on something they don't want to go one better they just want to kill the competition. Not the way it's supposed to work but bullies will be bullies until they are put in their place.Someone told me that Microsoft makes more money on Android than anyone else. Is this true?
Having a grammatical error in the first sentence takes a lot of the impact of the article away.
