    Isn’t the point of Android to keep you within the Google ecosystem? Yeah, I suppose with the Market…err..Play, there is direct income involved, but I would imagine that most of Android’s revenue is indirect. For example, how many people switched to Gmail because of their phone? How much money do those users generate in ad revenue?

    Is it just me or are some of the links on Android Overload usually redirected to ”
    Sorry, no posts matched your criteria. ” for the rest too?

    • tim bennett

      This happens all the time. Instead of linking to an outside source, the link goes nowhere in phandroid. :(

    • squiddy20

      The problem is, for whatever reason, they put the address of this webpage right before the address to the webpage they’re trying to link to. Look up in the URL bar. You’ll see the exact same html address for this page, followed immediately by the html address for the linked website, leading to the “no posts matched” error. I really don’t get how they can screw this up so much, and so often…

        Yeah funny it happens that often. Never bothered to check the address bar even though I would normally spot that, thanks for the heads up! beats googling the subject for a hit! :D

    Zagg offers warranty for unlocked smart phones. $100 for two years and $60 deductible? Squaretrade gave me one for my Nexus S for two years, $70 and NO deductible. Try again, Zagg.

      You sir did not read the fine print:

      Read under buy now it says “a $99 deductible applies to ALL claims”.
      So (ST)$125 for 2 years and $99 deductible on all claims vs (Zagg)$99 for 2 years and $59 deductible for cracked screen and water damage and no deductible for software issues, defects, battery or buttons?

      Im sorry but I think Zagg has a great thing going here MUCH better than SquareTrade
