3 decides to lock down Motorola A920 - only signed applications to run
In a surprising move 3 is doing what Orange did before with the SPV (Windows Mobile smartphone): only approved applications are allowed to run on the new Motorola A920 (Symbian based smartphone). Users have limited choice now.

This decision limits the amount of software users can actually install in their mobile phones. Users will no longer be able of running applications already in the market, developed before for the also Symbian UIQ based Sony Ericsson P800.
