Bad news for those with older Motorola models

Last week, Motorola launched its "Unlock My Device" web site to help Motorola  owners unlock their phones. Unfortunately, the only two handsets that can be unlocked are the recently launched Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE and the Motorola DROID RAZR Developer Edition. As far as its older models are concerned, a tweet from the manufacturer makes it clear that unlocking older devices "is not currently in the plan".

The wording of Motorola's response does leave some hope that the plan might change in the future, but for now those with Motorola phones that aren't terribly dated, like the Motorola DROID 4, will have to live with a locked bootloader not to mention those with older devices like the Motorola DROID 3 and the Motorola DROID BIONIC. While Motorola didn't explicitly say the words, the implication is that all newer models will come with an unlockable bootloader.
