Look at the new Samsung galaxy s2, comes with an unlocked boot loader. Tides could be shifting, that's for sure.
Definitely I am deeply disappointed with the desire s hardware, when you come out with a next generation phone users expect a next step up like the galaxy s2. HTC will lose out to Samsung and so. Even Sony Ericsson that I dislike before are making the right moves I should have gotten a SE arc or waited for the neo.
