Okay, I sent a message to the petition starter about the "why is this important" section. If we have a solid mission statement and clear objectives, it's just signatures signatures signatures and contacting Moto/VZW.




Also, I have no way of knowing if this will actually get them to change their policy, but I think we can get a response. I would be very hesitant to call it quits if we haven't even gotten some half-assed excuse out of them.

Android was created as a response to locked down platforms, right? I think Google would like to see them unlock, but I don't think we're going to see them pick sides when they're in the middle of trying to acquire Moto.

Don't get your hopes up on this. From what I've read and understood, this is more to do with patents. Moto would still stay as a separate entity. Google won't really control the manufacturing of the hardware. It's really a means of owning some patents.

Yep it is just for patent protection. That is why they declined buying out another company earlier this year.

Hey guys, I got a response from the petition starter and I've made a post over in the Razr thread (that one seems more popular) to get people brainstorming for the mission statement.

Yeah I wasn't waiting for Google to step in and save the day, I just thought they were still mucking around with the exchange in the EU courts or something.





Okay, it looks like the Razr thread might not be such a great place for a constructive discussion. Any devs want to pitch on what they feel would be important for the petition summary?
