Re: Same as Dell
ATT is selling handsets (computers/phones) and service (mandatory bundle). Sounds like the ATT back in the 1970's "can't use our phone network without our approved device, would you like it in black or black?"
Dell is selling computers (no required services).
Dell loads crap on their computers because customers need an OS or they won't buy and/or they are paid to (as in junk programs (apps in cellphone speak))
ATT could sell phones with or without OS's and not care and be similar to Dell.
I don't get how forcing a pricing of a service (Facetime, really moble data usage) is somehow different in network usage pricing because it is pre-installed. Why do not they not go ahead and charge a price for email since there is a preinstalled app for that?
I guess I just don't get it.
