Exclamation will the prime be rootable?

i have a huge concern about this. have most nexus/samsung devices been rooted easily? i want to be able to remove bloatware with freezer apps and have more control on this phone when it releases. or maybe one-click root methods?

....if so how long do you guys think it will take before it happens?

Yes and yes. I'm not sure how long but my guess is that it won't take very long.

1. Will be very easy rooted. When the nexus S was released Koush had it rooted in less than an hour I think, and mine was rooted with his guide within 2 hours of release. Google encourages it!

2. The point of the Nexus line is no bloat ware
