How is Rooting a Android device any different than Jailbreaking an iPhone?
As stated by AndroidPCS, HTC currently has instructions posted on how to unlock their most recent releases and have promised in the future to deliver unlocked devices when they are able. Google has bought Motorola and it's widely believed google will not be releasing locked phones. Samsung is lagging. And to reiterate my other point we are talking about multiple manufactueres and multiple phones, not 1 phone every 18 months or so.
