I don't know if its the same, but from what I've read so far, the permanent root they did to this pre-production phone is about as good as you can get (so similar level of access/control as those phones), and they don't expect things to be too different with the production model. I'm no expert on this stuff yet, I'm still learning though. I think it will be both, if not at launch then shortly after with a simple software update. That was one of the issues that could have been a possible cause for a delay. I think I read on another forum somewhere that there was trouble when going back and forth from 3G to 4G or something like that, but that issue was fixed. I don't think we will really know for sure until it comes out though unless blackmanx or some other tester comes in here and gives us an answer.
