    After going back and forth on this I believe I should post this here. Don't expect to see a sbf for this phone or any new phone coming from MOTO. Nor should you expect to see root as fast or in the same manner on the Droid. MOTO will lock down the bootloader and is trying to lock down partitions also don't know if this is set in stone or is true but this is what I'm being told. We could be like the incredible were the bootloader system and other things are locked . I don't know I only hope for the best as far as root users which is me

    Yeah I heard no more sbf's.....

    I'm hoping for some better news in regards to locking down these devices. That would be a drag...

    Still too early but that does seem to way things are shaping up.

    IF manufacturers completely prevent rooting android devices I will drop android like a hot potato and go back to a dumb phone. Speak with your wallets.

    I know 4.1 is only .2" smaller than the HD2 and EVO, but i wonder if typing will be any easier without the keyboard. Part of the allure of the Droid for me was the physical keyboard. However I would be willing to forgo the keyboard if i could actually type accurately on screen. Maybe Motorola felt that 4.1" was the right size and opted not to try to be competitive on the display size.

    Wow, you really think a screen .2" smaller diagonally is not being competitive?? The difference in width is only about .1", which is hardly enough to make a big difference in keyboard use.

    I've heard the same unfortunately, quite a drag indeed. The milestone can't be loaded with roms right? U hope we'll at least be able to root it since I have so many root apps.

    I think I would pre-order this one today if it was possible. Thought about switching to the DI but I wanted a bigger screen (AMOLED preferred) and 720p. Thought about waiting to see if a Verizon version of the Evo 4G was in the future. Played with a demo of an Evo to see how it felt and it was just a little too big. Considered waiting for the Samsung Galaxy S but not too sure about their version of Android and how they will incorporate TouchJiz. Think this one may just fit the bill even though it prolly won't have AMOLED.

    thats a deal breaker, I don't want some phone. I want a hobby, something I can't put down. Thats a rooted android phone. Not a locked one.

    too bad you cant order a phone like a computer. you choose the screen, processor, features, etc... you can even decide if you want some ui crap on it. the samsung galaxy s is everything i want except for their ui crapola.
