    At least they aren’t committing to a timetable for when they will release updates after Google and fail to follow through like some other OEMs have done. If an OEM is selling an unlocked device, it is completely unacceptable to not make releasing timely updates their number 1 priority. Releasing timely updates is a great thing to boost public image in the Android world where timely updates is still a rarity.

    Good, does that mean their phones will have an unlockable bootloader?
