    Does this phone have a locked bootloader? Can it be broken? It is everything I want in a phone, but I hate Samsung's UI more than Blur.

    I believe they have already released the source code for the charge which IMO is a very good sign

    You have just been post-pwned.

    I really thought the $299 price tag was a joke. Come on now who would pay that much for this phone?????? I sure wouldn't. Hmmmmm I wonder how long it will take them to lower the price of this device. People brought the $249 TB because they were loyal to HTC, loved sense and timely upgrades, but $299 for a phone that has a horrible rep for updating has the nerve to ask that much for a single core phone that will probably have horrible battery life, come on now.

    $299 does seem like a lot, but it is Samsung. Im sure the price will drop in a month or so to $199 if not less when the DInc 2 comes out.

    $300 for a device that's pretty much identical to TBolt? And it's only 2.2?

    I'll take a pass.
