    Ok, yeah the Nexus S 4g slipped past me... Is that the first time a Nexus phone was released as a variant with the same branding on a different carrier? It makes sense they would start looking elsewhere but I guess I haven't been paying enough attention.

    I really would be surprised if Google released a Nexus phone without an easily unlockable bootloader, though. I mean if they asked Motorola and they said no, I doubt they would still release the phone, call it a Nexus anyway and expect nobody to notice.

    Especially seeing as Google kinda owns the Nexus branding...
    Yeah, Google wouldn't release a Nexus phone with a locked bootloader. It's intended really as a developer phone, the same excuses about user error don't really apply.
