    @ZippyV: Actually that is also true of most european countries (except that you still have the option to buy a subsidized phone by locking yourself in a plan. Whatever).

    There are still several other ways a carrier can back a platform: getting an exclusive (as it happened with the iPhone, I think), selling the phone through their stores, featuring it prominently in their ads...

    The message that is going through right now is that nobody considered the platform worth committing, and that's not a good sign.
