    "The fact that anyone can get the Android OS for free makes the
    possibility of a low cost prepay smartphone a reality," said Yves
    Maitre, senior VP of mobile multimedia and devices at Orange. "In 2010
    we will be offering an Android handset at €150 on prepay, and I would
    expect that we will have an Android handset at below €150 before
    Christmas. This was considered unachievable six months ago," he told
    Total Telecom.

    And so they gradually get commoditized. So what happens to the vendors
    accustomed to high margins? Shape up or ship out.
