But in a heavily-stylized font such that the u is symmetrical, the l and t are nearly identical, and the B and H are very similar as well.
Then you can do it up so the second half is angled off of the first a bit, such that one half appears to be a reflection of the other half.
Make the left half of the logo one color and the right half another color. We'll probably go with a dark or grey-blue on the left, and then a desaturated version on the right. For plaintext use we'll prescribe black for the left half and grey, italics for the right. For monotone use it'll be black on the left and white (or grey) on the right.

Somebody get on this shit now. I need vector illustrations.

I disagree about the "openness being a disadvantage." Seriously, name one thing that the carriers/OEMs do, in terms of software, that adds any significant value. I throw down the gauntlet.

Samsung added multi-window support years and years ago and gave us the stylus and all its features.

10 times cheaper.

You likely meant one of the following:

1/10th as expensive.
90% less expensive.

Something that is "10 times cheaper" that something else that costs 1 dollar would itself cost negative 9 dollars.
It is 10 times (1 dollar) cheaper (than the 1 dollar item). 10 times 1 dollar is 10 dollars. Cheaper indicates a cost of fewer dollars, so we subtract 10 from 1 and get negative 9 dollars.

Alternatively, we can reserve this interpretation for "less expensive" and use "cheaper" as a bounded modifier, with direction self-contained, thus capping the result at 0 dollars on the low end. This would make any relative comparison past "1 time cheaper" useless, though it does make sense, just as deceleration means velocity stops at zero, while negative acceleration (similar to "less expensive") is unbounded.
