Yeah, if we can manage to get one out there, I am sure the carriers would ease up. It is just a matter of getting that first one. Essentially, I think the phone would have to be another "superphone". Something that turns the heads of people like the Nexus One did when it first came out. But then we saw how well that was adopted outside of the developer and early adopter phase. But I think a lot of it had to do with how Google marketed it. Marketing would definitely be a huge factor in the success or failure of a CM device.
marketing is everything! if the first phone broke ice it would need to be a 2.0 GHZ dual (maybe a quad core) with 1 GB of RAM (2 if its even possible) 720p resolution, and 32 GB built in storage.
the phone would need to stand out, without costing a fortune to the consumer.
so we would need a OEM to get it rolling but first we would need that technology capabilities.
