THE OUTLINE

Carrier 411

Rumor Roundup

  • HTC is holding two simultaneous events in London and NYC. Since London is a few hours in the future, it has been asked to not spoil things for the New Yorkers like they've been doing with Downton Abbey.

Android At Arms

  • Carrier unlocking phones is now illegal. In that it's legal, you just have to go through your carrier to do it. Or buy an unlocked phone. Or unlock an old phone yourself. Assuming it even works on other networks.
  • Judge Koh says Samsung's infringement of Apple's patents wasn't evil, it was just stupid.

Eric Ravenscraft
Eric is a snarky technophile with a taste for the unusual. When he's not obsessing about Android, you can usually find him obsessing about movies, psychology, or the perfect energy drink. Eric weaves his own special blend of snark, satire, and comedy into all his articles.
