Company fulfills promises

HTC has finally expanded the list of devices that are included in the official bootloader unlocking program. The company has updated its developer site, notifying visitors that all of the HTC Android devices launched after September 2011 are unlockable.

The company previously committed to unlocking its 2011 smartphone lineup, with the first devices unlocked in July. Recent devices to be added to the list include the Evo View 4G and myTouch 4G Slide, while the latest announcement is expected to cover the Vivid and Rezound.

"The website will be updated accordingly to reflect this in the coming weeks," HTC wrote on the developer site. "We continue to work on models launched prior to September 2011, please check back often for the status of older devices." [via Androidcentral]

    HTC is sinking fast...

    They are being forced to make compromises to try and prevent their market share slide but nothing will help them or others from their commoditized future.
