Apple are the big brother of the phone market. They can and do "kill" phones that have been broken from the contract they were tied to. They can
and do update the software on the phone remotely - and have used this technique to kill phones with modified firmware. They are running a one company
boycott on technologies they don't like - without any thought for the user's views on whether or not they should be allowed to view a sizeable
proportion of webpages (flash).
Out of the two, Apple and Google, Google seem to be the lesser of two evils.
But, and here I speak as a paid up geek, if you want a cell phone, just buy a damned cell phone. If you want a freaking web-browser, buy a cheap
netbook and a connection cable, far better.
