This morning, Motorola posted up a video that hypebeasted the massive 3300mAh battery that they managed to pack into their new DROID RAZR MAXX and it got me thinking. What would the Android landscape look like right now had Motorola done something to please the developer community?
The RAZR by all means, is one of my favorite phones of the last couple of years (just read our review of it). It’s unbelievably thin, has a fantastic radio inside, takes better than average photos, and has the specs to give it a long and prosperous life. But thousands of the readers of this site passed on it for the Galaxy Nexus, knowing that it would be locked up as tight as all previous Moto phones. When polled though, readers almost always come back to Motorola as one of their favorite manufacturers, even after almost 2 years of missed opportunities to reach back out to the community that helped their original DROID succeed.
So I’m just wondering, if Moto had unlocked the bootloader on the RAZR and RAZR MAXX, would you have passed on the Nexus or Rezound?
