If being locked into a 3-year cell phone contract infuriates you to no end and you’d really like to take it out on the wireless providers, the CRTC has an open ear. Several hundred Canadians took advantage of a public consultation and wrote in to the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission as part of a proposed code of conduct for the country’s wireless industry.
The issue most on the minds of those who responded: 36-month cell phone contracts should be banned. Now that the first round of consultation has closed, the regulator will likely issue a draft code sometime in January.
Discuss this further in Digital Home’s Canadian Internet, Phone, TV and Wireless Service Providers forum. With the Android phone currently limited to T-Mobile and the HTC G1, the rest of the world has to wait. China, for instance, has voiced their interest in the said upstart OS, but instead of the G1, they are choosing Lenovo Mobile as the hardware provider for the Android OS.

Will other countries follow suit in China’s decision to take the G1 out of the Android picture?
Waiting three years to upgrade mobile phones, extending contracts to get a new phone before term or paying hefty cancellation fees, while on contract, to sign on with another provider with a better offer, are all bothersome elements of the 3-year deals.
A second round of online consultation and public hearings will follow, starting in February 2013.
New wireless entrants including WIND, Mobilicity, Public Mobile and Videotron account for a mere 4 percent of Canada’s 27-million wireless subscribers and combined for just 2 percent of overall revenues in 2011. If you buy your cellphone at full price, then you can enjoy the benefit of having a no contract deal.
However, considering that the Android OS is not exclusive to one particular device, we can expect other phone models aside from the G1 to likewise feature the hyped mobile OS.
It makes sense since Lenovo is a local brand for China, so it shouldn't be as expensive as importing the G1.

I certainly hope so since we all know by now how competition only brings out the best in both products and services; a win-win for the consumer. If you want the benefit of a free phone or a get ridiculous savings on a phone, then you sign a contract for a term.
This brings forth the scenario wherein local thriving mobile phone manufacturers possibly jump on board the Android bandwagon in the hopes of cashing in on the craze, while at the same time providing consumers with an option. This, in turn, will force companies to create better hardware since the OS will be a level playing field with the Android OS being a common denominator.
