    It seems like all the new phones have locked bootloaders and/or an obnoxious ui. the droid x comes to mind as a perfect example but most phones have custom a custom ui (motoblur, senseui, etc). The only phones that i can think of that have vanilla android are the phones that google used as the first phone for os versions (g1, d1, n1...).

    So I was wondering if the new dual core phones would have locked bootloaders or not. I'm guessing it depends on brand but I wanted to know what you guys thought.

    Vanilla android is a must for me in choosing a new top end phone. Or I'd be happy if I can load a custom rom that is vanilla. What about you?

    New phones will be locked down and will not be vanilla. They will then be rooted and custom roms will be available. Just my opinion (but I'm right)!!! ;-)
