Carriers love Android

by Volker Weber

Verizon was seeking between $1 and $2 for each device affected, executives said. Verizon started courting advertisers with app installations late last year, pitching retail and finance brands among others, agency executives said. It has only offered the installations on Android phones, because Google's software is open for carriers to customize. Apple controls its platform more tightly.

"More tightly" is beating around the bush. No crapware from carriers. No "Intel Inside" stickers.

Will this not just encourage/push people to purchase their device independently of a carrier.

Crapware is something that people discover, after they got their phone "on contract".
