AT&T phones

On a recent webcast from the Churchill Club Annual Dinner, AT&T chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson stated: "We are probably one of the most open networks in the world, not just in the United States. We have thousands of people developing into our architecture today. All of the AT&T phones we sell are Java-equipped. Who doesn't know how to develop into Java, right? If you want to buy a handset on our network without a contract, fine. Just pay retail price for the handset. Right? The only reason we make people sign a contract is if we're subsidizing it heavily. So I would suggest to you we feel like we're a very open network and I think you'll see that continue to open up."

Hop-on - GSM & CDMA technologies

Earlier this week, major industry company Verizon announced its plan to open its network. AT&T and Verizon's decision will open the access door for non-phone devices like gaming systems or cameras for the first time. "This is huge news for us," says Michaels. "Now we can go after Verizon and AT&T customers because they are opening their network and allows Hop-on to sell new models of GSM and CDMA technologies to the US and European Markets subscribers as potential customers.

AT&T phones - Google Android

Verizon's earlier announcement and now AT&T announcement comes just weeks after Google unveiled its plans to release its own open mobile platforms, an Android Linux-based device operating system and its Open Handset Alliance, a conglomeration of over 30 companies looking to develop lower cost, open mobile devices. Verizon's, AT&T and Google's new strategies signal a shift in open thinking that other communications companies are bound to follow.
