Motorola Atrix 4G
March 1st!!!!!! It seems sooooo far!!
So I just got off the phone with At&t to see if existing customers can pre-order this phone any time soon and the old gal didn't even know what I was talking about, much less understand the question. But she did some looking and came back and told me that she had found some info on the phone stating it will launch MARCH 1ST!!!! Im tired of my Captivate not having crap for GPS. The ONLY thing I MIGHT miss is the SuperAMOLED. CES Was just a few days ago. The phone looked ready to go there... Why do I have to wait a month and a half.... Doesn't At&t want to lock in more customers into a contract befor a ton of them leave for the VZ iPhone 4? Not like I'll ever go to crapy provider... But this phone could seriously keep a bunch of peo...
Why do you say that this phone wont be able to be rooted? And Motorola doesnt lock down their phones as much as its the providers. SPECIALLY AT&T!
I have no doubt that this thing will be able to be rooted and MotoBlur will be able to be removed.
"First issue is motorola's insistence on locking/encrypting the bootloader. This prevents anyone from updating the OS unless it's put out by Motorola or someone leaks a prerelease. Why is there an insistence on locking user's out of their own cell phones?
Second issue is Blur. Why mess with the droid UI? Especially in the newer releases, android has a lot of skins and customizations. A 3rd party UI like blur is painful to use, and also hampers OS updates since Motorola now has to not only make and test the new OS but backport blur to it."
This thing will be rooted in under 30 days. With all of the attention that Motorola has brought onto it being 'locked down'...whoever roots it will be a hero.
