In a quick statement just published on HTC’s Facebook page, HTC CEO Peter Chou said:
For anyone out there that roots their devices to customize them, this is probably the best news you can get.
I have been sticking with Motorola phones because I didn't like the Eris, but now I am really considering jumping ship to HTC. Motorola take notice, or you're going to lose a lot of customers to HTC. Just my 2 cents!
Droid 1 (was my back up, then let my son have it, and he drowned it within a week)
Chevy01 SS 4.8
ChevyNo1 1.1 Ghz MedV
Baseband --> C_01.43.01P
Droid X (My current back up, and he's not getting it)
This is a great move for HTC. I wonder how this is going to affect the devices already out like the thunderbolts etc. Hopefully they just put the keys in one of the next few OTA's. I'm going to have a long relationship with HTC.
