T-Mobile Backs Open Source Android In Letter To Customers

T-Mobile USA’s Chief Marketing Officer, Cole Brodman posted a letter in the company’s Issues and Insights Blog this week that addressed the absence of the iPhone from its line-up, explaining their desire instead, to go withno-compromise” devices from Android. If, in the unlikely case that Apple makes a major swing in that direction, Brodman suggests that T-Mobile would be open to carrying iPhones in the future, even acknowledging “over a million” customer using their network with unlocked iPhones.

Quickly turning his message towards the free-market Android OS, the CMO mentions his recent presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S II and HTC Amaze at the recent Mobilize event held in San Francisco. With enthusiasm he adds, “We’re very confident that these Android smartphones rival or beat any smartphone out there in terms of functionality, speed, overall expnerience and features – including the iPhone” and champions Android’s “freedom of choice” for their customers in customization options and benefits from open source innovation.
