    I have no idea honestly. Wouldn't locking the bootloader defeat the whole purpose of the Nexus phone? These are supposed to be Dev phones right? Then again I suppose bloat may in some opinions too.

    Right, I understand that too and hope that's the case. I'm just not going to be mad if its not, as long as its unlocked. For me the unlocked phone is more important then any bloat that could be on it.

    There's also a significant difference in the demographic of Android buyers....For the most part, people get an upgrade and they go into the store and pick out a phone to buy. With the IPhone, people know there's only 1 release a year and so if they plan to stick with IOS, then you get the mad crush of sales when it releases.

    I'd expect the Bionic sales to be more consistent over time, and it will do pretty well over a year. Of course the other fact of Android is, even on a single carrier, a better phone is out in a few months. Probably partly why we see so many marginal refreshes and upgrades, and the OEM's have multiple models. The Bionic probably won't have staying power, but then Moto will have several other models. So they don't need, nor expect, a single model to sell like the IPhone, not for more than a few months anyway. They also have more competition - all else equal, when you split the Android pie it's nearly impossible for a single carrier to get more than 1/3, even 1/4, of that.

    I wouldn't rely on forum traffic as any indicator of total sales. Truth of the matter is most ppl who own these phones are not members of any forum. The numbers who are on the forums are actually a very small amount

    Which is why some people think that VZW will be getting the Droid Prime and everyone else will be getting the Galaxy Nexus... almost the same phone with just different "features"
    If you always seem to have drama in your life, you are probably the one causing the drama.
    If customer service representatives or restaurant servers always seem to be rude to you, you are probably the one being rude.
    If your computer always seems to be freezing up on you, you're probably doing something wrong.

    In my experience, drama begets drama, rudeness begets rudeness, and ineptitude begets ineptitude.

    I know better than that, but if there were no traffic it would sure make me wonder!

    Google will not let a Nexus launch with bloat on it. At most they may go the way of Sprint that had a few apps on theirs, but they were uninstallable without root. There are reliable sources of information that have system dumps and are advising that it does not come bloated. I believe them.

    Not rooting a phone that's pretty much made for it? That should be illegal!
