Is it fair that manufacturers restrict what we can do with the smartphones we purchase, drawing lines in the sand between permitted “consumer” activities and prohibited “developer” ones? We're hard-pressed to argue how that possibly makes sense, but like it or not, that's the situation for many handsets out there, leading to the release of Developer Editions that cater to the power user who can't resist the temptation to poke around a bootloader. We've seen Samsung give such treatment to models from its Galaxy lineup of Androids, like the Note 3 last fall. This year, it's the Note ...

$649.99 is what you had to pay to own a Developer Edition Motorola Moto X. However, if you are preparing to grab one just now, the new price is more attractive.

As you can see pictured above, we're looking at a black-and-white flavor (black front with white back), and a "Developer Edition" text specifically being called out on the bottom. The text says "Moto X ...

We all kept a good eye on HTC's promise of selling a SIM and Boot Loader-unlocked Developer Edition of their HTC One on the same days that the carriers are getting their devices. We're glad to inform that HTC kept their promise, and as of today at 10AM EST, you can purchase your Developer Edition HTC One online. There are a ton of advantages to this device. First of all, it's SIM unlocked, so you can use it on AT&T, T-Mobile or abroad. You can obviously tweak the software all you want since the Boot Loader is unlocked. Now even better is the price tag. If you wanted to buy a ...
