Mobitopia on Software Locking

Rafe Blandford chimes in on A920 software locking over at Mobitopia. Choice quote: "The very fact that the handset has been launched without a signing process already in place is worrisome." Exactly.

It seems like Motorola and 3 have little interest in supporting the A920 as a software platform. UIQ already has a fairly rich library of software available for it, thanks to the Sony Ericsson P800. But 3 is throwing that library out the window, just so it can grab a few pennies in certification fees.
