We have a very good run of good news items related with the release of the bootloaders of future mobile/tablets with Android. Sony Ericsson gave the pistolezado of output when it announced, and later confirmed, that it would open the bootloaders of their future Xperia 2011 lock. Few weeks after Samsung also joined the cart and also announced that he would do something like.
As well, 2 days ago spread the rumor that Motorola I was thinking to sign up to this very good fashion and it seems that the confirmation of this rumor is coming. Is true that already commented that their Motorola Xoom tablet would be open to Custom ROMs in the future but this promise we know little. It seems that also, listening to the requests of their customers (and users in general), Open the bootloader to the next models your brand in the future. In all 3 cases (Sony Ericsson, Samsung, Motorola) this freedom is only available for free terminals the legal commitment with the operator and always under risk of end user.
In terms of your question – we completely understand the operator requirement for security to the end user, and as well, want to support the developer communities desire to use these products as a development platform. It is our intention to enable the unlockable/relockable bootloader currently found on Motorola XOOM across our portfolio of devices starting in late 2011, where carriers and operators will allow it.
We would like this fashion promoted by 3 of the most important mobile phone manufacturers be expanded to the rest of the range of its terminals gradually scales. To my particular HTC to (mostly) enter you itching and decided to follow in the footsteps of its competitors would like to. Dreaming is free and sometimes becomes a reality.
