550 bucks to have an unlocked bootloader.
Or buy any Samsung device. (Except Verizon's)
jfcooley -- i personally see this as a replacement of the "nexus". While the next "nexus" might "officially" come out from Samsung, it seems that google basically just said if you spend $550 on a Motorola phone from US, you can do anything you want (custom ROM, etc...).
Sounds to me like they have made a deal w/ Samsung already about the next "Nexus", but this is their way of just releasing the alternative nexus.
^^^ that's what I'm reading into this Motorola launch and offer. Makes me wonder how long it will take before the next Nexus will be (only) a Moto creation. The price tag will drop substantially. Word here is the Motorola will hit US$350/400 within a month after launch...and that´s buying it free from carrier.

I'll pass then. I will not use another Moto.
They did the same thing with the Maxx HD (think that was the one)
