PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Wait, is this for real? The company that striketh console jailbreakers with smite and other things that sound Biblical now actually launches a site specifically for unlocking its Android phones? Yes, Sony Ericsson just launched a website where owners of the company's latest Android phones can go to to unlock their devices. It's unreal - but a very welcome move, and hopefully a sign of things to come for other companies.

Indeed. Besides, jailbreaking an iPhone is legal, so why not try to attract some positive press? If you also consider Sony's shrinking market share[1], this is a logical move. Geeks would love it and might just as well forget that GeoHot business.
