There is good news and bad news. The good news is Motorola will be offering a bootloader unlock solution. Bad news, people over in the US won't be able to use it. Yes Motorola is releasing a solution to unlock the bootloader on the Motorola RAZR, most probably Google had a say in this, but only people outside of the US will be able to use the solution. Carriers have the choice of having this option removed and it is what Verizon have done, the exclusive carrier for the device.
This will be another reason for people outside the US to upgrade, especially the power Android users who were underwhelmed by the Galaxy Nexus. I don't know about you but the RAZR is a worthy contender for my next device because of the aesthetics, specs and now, the ability to root.
So if you're in the UK, like the Motorola RAZR and fancy rooting your device you can pre-order one right here.
