In 2011 Motorola became even more developer friendly by announcing they would start unlocking some bootloaders. While they aren’t going to unlock the original Droid Razr or the Droid Razr Maxx they have announced that they are releasing a developer’s edition of the Droid Razr with an unlocked bootloader.
The developer’s edition will release in Europe first, however we hear that it will hit U.S. soil as well.
An important factor to consider with the developer’s edition of the Droid Razr is that in a press briefing last week Motorola’s Sr. VP Alain Mutricy said that they would be focusing on high end Android devices and expanding the Droid Razr line, presumably beyond the already announced at the time, Motorola Droid Razr Maxx.
Motorola announced, prior to the release of the Droid Razr, that the bootloader would be unlockable and that decision would be on the carrier, of course Verizon Wireless declined.
