Locked down Android

Android is becoming a controlled platofrm like Apple's iPhone thanks to companies like Motorola who does not respect the consumers and their rights to modify and also the openness of Android which Motorola is delberately demolishing.
If Google doesn't squeeze phone makers like Motorola, to follow the openness of what Android should be, how would Google's fragmented Android platform be any better than iPhone's closed source iOS ?

FOSS or the open source community should create a list of non-open source compliant companies and rally a campaign in an attempt to change such a scenario.


Android's in a mess. Now it's hard to tell who to trust.
