Comment Re: It's javascript engines Apple doesn't allow. (Score 1) 72

Today, you're correct that Apple doesn't have to rely on the carriers' good graces to sell usable phones. But that's because we've had 9 years of the iPhone to show carriers that they'll lose out on a lot of data charges if they don't allow iPhones on their network. When Apple was making deals in 2006-2007, they had to find a carrier that would permit them on the network to begin with. Both Apple and AT&T made out like bandits, but one of the things Apple had to give up was selling the phone on other (US) networks for a couple years.
