    Yeah, I could live with a Samsung or an HTC for my next smartphone. I won't buy a phone I can't customize.

    But damn that Bionic looks nice.

    Well as jacked up a statement as that was, we have done pretty well with the locked down bootloader on the d2 and dx. If I had the opportunity I would probably still get the bionic.

    Motorola thinks a lot works, including their camera lenses, blur, keyboards, locked bootloaders, etc. But in fact they do not. I absolutely hated Moto before because their phones were just bad, but they brought me back with the D1. They are about to lose me and many more again.

    lol, this message was loud and clear when they released the X and the D2. I'm not in the market for a new phone but I understand their strategy. You have to remember the majority of Droid owners do not root.:eek::eek::eek:

    Yep, that's right. People like my wife could care less about rooting and are quite happy with the phone as is. So if someone came out and just said it, that's not surprising.

    What is unfortunate is that so many really good apps are being made for rooted phones and stock phones can't use them. Heck, you can't even get a screen shot unless you're rooted.

    It will be interesting to see how that changes when Amazon takes control of the Market.

    I thought I just read a few days ago that the bionic was going to not be locked. I was excited for that phone now, not so much.

    That is just a rumor. Nothing is official until Motorola says it, and judging by their last phones, id say that it will have a locked bootloader.

    I don't know why people care, if you want to root, someone will find a way to root no matter what Moto does.

    As for them treating the rooting community with some childish comments? Just uncalled for.
