Google Motorola's Punit Soni on the Moto X and bootloaders:

Moto X on the Sprint, US Cellular, Rogers and T-Mobile networks will have an unlockable bootloader, and in addition, we will be offering a Verizon Wireless Developer Edition and a general North American Developer Edition.

Good.

As a european I don't care in which factory half around the globe this phone is built, whether it's china, korea or USA. I just want a current phone (N4 is already 9 months old, which is a long time in the phone business) with a sane update cycle. Actually I'd be satisfied with the two standard colors that will be the only available options for all US carriers that are not AT&T.

I'd hardly call this a current phone, or at least flagship - it is mid-range at best. No way I'd take this over the Nexus 4 (which I own).

In which regard is the Moto X worse than N4? It's got no quadcore, right, but I don't even manage to get all four cores of my notebook saturated. I'd rather take two fast Krait 300 cores than four cores of anything, that'll idle most of the time anyway. I actually take that as an advantage.
