PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Good news for owners of HTC's Android devices - HTC has expanded its official bootloader unlock utility to cover all HTC Android devices launched after September 2011, no matter the carrier. Older models will also be added to the tool, but this will take a little longer.

That's great... but it worries me that the process involves calling home for an auth token. Meh.

I'm American, but I'm glad I live outside America where unbranded, unlocked phones are more common. Buy phone, buy SIM, done. No contracts, no carrier bloat.
