For me, it is important to have an unlocked bootloader. I would consider the developer's version of the Samsung galaxy s3 if it actually is released, works on Verizon's network, and Verizon allows it on Verizon's network.
Also, motorola is starting to allow unlocking its bootloaders if the cell company agrees. Verizon won't agree, but there are some razors in other countries that can be unlocked. That might be nice, a razer max with unlocked bootloader?
