Submission + - Optus Dropping ball on Android (apcmag.com)

Phroghollow writes: Optus have traditionally been terrible with their support of Android, they were first to market with an Android Phone in Australia with the HTC Dream, however support since then has flown downhill rapidly, 3 months behind T-Mobile in releasing the 1.5 Cupcake update to their customers, they have still not released the 1.6 Donut release and have advised customers of a release date "Sometime in December" nearly 2 months after Vodafone/3 Customers received the 1.6 Donut Update. Now they have started their own App store in what seems to be a grab for the App store money, they are actively blocking Optus customers from accessing paid apps available to every other carrier in Australia, forcing customers to either root their phone and use the Market Enabler App or purchase and use a second sim to access paid apps.
