PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless On July 15th the latest Android super-phone was released by Motorola and Verizon Wireless. All hail the Droid X. The release was not without controversy though. The Droid X, while greatly raising the bar for Android phones in general, does so at the expense of the very power users and community that made the original Droid the gotta-have phone it became. Alienating this group may have far reaching consequences for Motorola.

Motorola made this so people are prevented to tinker with their phone. Their locking of the bootloader and other measures are artificial timebombs to retire the phone support and force people to buy the next phone. It is as simple as that.

No it isn't that simple, pirates have been making use of them as well.
