Hey all,

1) Here is a link about certain companies/carriers locking down their
Android devices.  If you want to put your own custom ROM on a phone
don't go with Motorola.

2) If you are looking for a cheap Android tablet you may want to look
at the Barnes and Nobel Nook Color.  It current runs Android 2.1 but
it looks like it will be getting Android 2.2 soon.

The 2.2 upgrade will give you access to B&N own app marketplace.
Right now it is not possible to buy apps on the device unless you root
it.
