moto x motorola broll (6)

For those who were curious, the Moto X comes with a locked bootloader. Not a surprise, as it’s a carrier device right now, but worth noting.

Motorola is said to be working on a SIM unlocked version of the device, but no word on when (or if) a developer edition would be available. We’d like to think that Motorola would at least provide a developer edition, but perhaps they don’t see that as important or necessary.

With devices only being distributed through carriers right now, it seems Motorola is playing their new device a little close to the chest. That’s not a bad thing, but not the most desirable for many consumers, either.

We’ll keep you updated as we learn more. What do you think of the Moto X so far? Are you liking the contextual awareness, or does the AT&T exclusive on customization keep you away? Be sure to sound off in our comments sections, here or on other posts about the Moto X. We want to hear what you have to say!
