    Good point. While AT&T has it first, they can gain root access, then when we get it on VZW we won't have to wait :)

    I like you're thinking CK.

    Is AT&T going to be using the same LTE technology as VZW for their 4G network, though? If not, the devices will be as different as the Milestone was from the DROID. And look how different those devices are as far as the modding scene. IIRC, they both used entirely different exploits to attain root; and the Milestone's bootloader is much more like the DROID 2's than the DROID's.

    In the end, this too is my opinion. It should be rooted by the time VZW gets it (unless VZW changes something), and that's good enough for me.

    I'll be taking a hard look at this phone also but I think I can be patient enough to wait for root and give CM at least a month with it before I make a decision. Also maybe by then a similiar device with a usable hardware keyboard will be on the horizon. My 2 cents...
