Yeah, since it went through the FCC, I'm hoping for a simultaneous release. Unfortunately, none of the 'leaked' advertisements have so much as hinted at a WiFi version, so I doubt it's going to be so soon.

I'm undecided on whether thats a good thing or not. As early adopters we're taking the risk that this thing is not rootable. If its not I for one will be really disappointed.

What I'm saying is letting the 3G guys take the risk could be decent for those looking forward to WiFi.

That was my cynical half talking.

Practical half here,

No way could it be locked down, if so, Motorola really shot itself in the foot.

I'm like the rest of you, waiting on the wifi release date. There really isn't any reason we shouldn't know it by now.

Most, if not all, Motorola phones have a locked bootloader. I don't know what this means exactly, since I've never had a Moto phone, but it can't be good for development. I'll bet the Xoom's bootloader is also locked.

I can't remember a device that was a "Google Experience" that was locked.

was the milestone considered a Google experience?

I figure if it's the wifi only model there should be no carrier requirements for moto.

Only motoblur phones are locked to prevent replacement. Xoom wont be
