You hear that Sammy? Their 5 incher is going to (supposedly) be NEXUS LIKE???? GET TO WORKING ON THAT NEXUS NOTE!!!
I bet Verizon's will have a locked bootloader and at the very least, a weak lock on the other carriers. It would be great if it was truly up to the carrier and like the S3, only have the idiots at Verizon lock theirs. If they are all locked down tight, Moto is dead to me.

Hmmmm....if it's cross-carrier I wonder what the potential would be to buy an unlocked or weak-locked version on, say Sprint LTE, and then bring it over to VZW (since they don't subsidize those on unlimited plans anymore)?
If locked bootloaders bug you then you should either A- buy the Dev edition or B- not be on Verizon. And they could also offer an unlock utility that voids the warranty like other manufacturers. Moto isn't the evil tyrant everyone thinks they are...

Hope its true. For my wants n needs Moto has never let me down. Maybe I just got lucky with my phone selections.....
I dont like the 5"+ phones that are coming out tho. In this case...I would deal with it. I'm one of the few that actually like Moto phones now a days...lol.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
I hope this does come out in May. My first phone was the OG Droid then when I was able to upgrade I got the Bionic. When May comes around I'll be able to upgrade again. I'll stick with Moto phones until they fail me. So far I have real good luck.
