Re: Microsoft phones

Except at the time the carriers pushed back and basically gave an ultimatum, "You let us lock our stuff in or your phones don't go in our stores. Deal or No Deal?" That meant Google couldn't pull an Apple (who could only do what they did due to their unique sirenesque appeal) as the carriers were willing to walk away and leave Android dead in the water. Know any other way to break into phone market in the late oughties?
