    I know there's been a lot of talk on this topic, but here's something new (at least to me)

    At the 2:32 mark of this Engadget video of the Bionic, we see the phone has a developer tools application. I've flashed my OG Droid more times than _______ [insert witty analogy there], but I don't know much about developing.

    So - do you think there's a higher chance the bootloader will be unlocked/unsigned/not-encrypted seeing that video/app? I mean, why would they have a developer app in a demo model if it WASN'T going to be a dev-friendly device? And yes, I know the TB had a locked/signed bootloader & it's already been permrooted.
