Re: Why not?

There is only one reason, the wireless carriers are anathema to it. They want the lockin. Otherwise its a chip and go situation. TBH it should have happened years ago. With the way politicians are bought and sold. I'm not getting my hopes up.

I wish Google would throw their weight behind the idea. I know the hardware manufacturers like Apple won't, they like the idea of selling you a different phone every time you want to change carriers.

Because it benefits the public rather than just greed interoperability of the 700 MHz band should have been in the law in the first place.

Google won't do that. They will only do what's best for their $$$$ from advertising and data mining.

Google, or Apple?

Are you out of this world? Ever heard of iPhone 4S? Or the trully unlocked Quad-GSM w/ Quad-UMTS w/ Dual-CDMA2000 w/ LTE iPad 3?

Google doesn't have any weight behind such an idea at all. If anything, Apple is the company that would be seeking for this to happen. And it'll happen eventually.
