Irwin Proud, of Australian Android site Ausdroid, has confirmed with Motorola that the RAZR will be the first Moto handset to offer official unlockable boatloader action.
It’ll essentially offer a safer method of faffing around with custom ROMs and the like. Noice. If you’re into that kind of thing.
However, the lovely Christy Wyatt, Motorola’s Corporate Vice President and General Manager Enterprise, confirmed that Verizon in the US opted to disable the unlockable bootloader option for the Motorola RAZR.
As for the rest of the globe, it's pretty much down to the carriers. Christy was unable to confirm the dealio for SIM free Motorola RAZRs.
Lady Wyatt also talked about Motorola’s plans for Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and said that the lucky devices will be determined by “volumes, carriers and hardware capabilities”.
The Motorola RAZR, formerly known as the Spyder, will land in the UK on November 1, and is expected to sell for around £450 SIM Free. It boasts a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.3in Super AMOLED display, and an 8MP snapper. Not too shabby.
