While I have been using RW for years and love the service, I am not as happy with the phone selection as I would like to be. It seems this really should not be a problem since there current software sounds like it would work on pretty much any stock android platform.
What I’d like to see is a Republic Lab where you could get their software without the specif phone check. It should probably check the android version and the other things that really are necessary for the service to work, but then allow you to try things out on the phone.
People in this lab would understand that an unsupported phone is just that, unsupported. But it would allow them to see if their favorite phone has acceptable functionality as well as giving feedback to RW so that they can expand their list of supported phones.
Seems like this would be a win win and would eliminate yet another reason for people trying out inferior competitor offerings.
