G1 locked to T-Mobile so is it really open source?
We have been hearing for some time how the new Google Android T-Mobile G1 being an open source handset and T-Mobile’s status as a founding member of the Open Source alliance, and how Android is truly open source, but it appears that the G1 is to be locked to T-Mobile.
Yes it is common practice these days to lock a mobile phone to specific carriers, but in this case it raises a few questions. For example, can a mobile phone be classed as “truly open” if it is officially restricted to a particular carrier?
As the G1 is locked will we see a rush to jailbreak it? Will there now be a G1 Dev team in the making?
What’s your take, is the G1 truly open source?
