Sent from my Nexus One using XDA App
Experience counts: Motorola M3788, Nokia 503NK , Motorola V220, Motorola V551, Nokia 3310, Sony Ericsson T68i, Motorola RAZR V3, Nokia 3510, LG Chocolate, Nokia e71, HTC Hero, Google Nexus One , Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini, Samsung Galaxy S, Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, HTC Sensation 4g, Samsung Galaxy Note, Nokia C2-02, Samsung Galaxy S III, Google Nexus 4... That will do for now.

Excellent news. Wish more manufacturers would follow suit. Next time my contracts up , I'll seriously consider SE now if they are going to continue with this.

Any word if the US bound one (for Verizon) will have locked bootloader?
My guess is yes, but I really don't want to be right in this case...
