    Droid charge unlocked bootloader?

    I read at android police that the droid charge is factory unlocked. If that's the case will this phone be themed and get slapped with roms? Im asking being the droid x came out and d2 owners I would say would get scraps left over in a way. Their was always more interest in the droid x compared to the droid 2. By the sounds of it people may not pick up the droid charge because of touchwiz or that samsung takes forever to release updates. So does anyone plan on buying it or waiting?

    Swyped from the best phone in verizon's line up.

    Most devs seem busy on the tbolt.

    Also with a 299 price tag and 749 retail price, hard to tell how popular the device will be.

    I've heard a rumored release to be on Thursday...phones are already in stores.

    I think I might wait for the galaxys2. Dual core 3g with awesome battery life... and hopefully a bit cheaper.

    But amazon has droid branded devices for a penny usually a month or two after release you would think if it had a unlocked bootloader devs would be all over it im considering this or the new droid targa

    $749 is the bloated retail price, Verizon's retail price is somewhere between $619-639. I will likely pay retail unless I can get an early upgrade done.

    I'd like to know this as well. While the devs are having a good time with the TB, the Charge (from everything I've heard) gets significantly better battery life and I'm starting to consider this phone over the TB.

    How was the ROMing with previous Samsung phones (the Facsinate, etc..)? If I buy this phone TouchWhiz would have to go!

    I have seen over at android central one of the lucky bums who got it before the gates slammed shut and he was running spb's launcher and it looked really nice. There is a current Fascinate Dev over at AC who is willing to port all of his work to the Charge, but he is (reasonably) asking for help in paying for one. I'm no coder/dev so I would be happy to help out those who help us.

    Has anyone confirmed the bootloader is unlocked so we can put a new kernel in it?
