One of the bad things about the unlocker is that you lose netflix and other streaming services. on the plus side you lose those services on the android, but not on Linux or various other operating systems that you can install on the prime.

I don't think you would lose Netflix. You can get Netflix for anything. Check Xda.com for more info.

You don't lose Netflix, that guy is high or something.

why did it take so long for netflix to come out on android??? because the device was not secure! Google had to secure the OS and work with the cell companies in order to get netflix on the device! so if you unlock the device it will make it less secure for netflix and their partners.

How high are you right now?

Care to explain how unlocking makes it "less secure"? Please I'm dying to know. Got my tinfoil hat ready and everything.

Hey.That_Dude

This is great news with that Ubuntu/Andriod fusion software comming out. On dock it's an Ubuntu laptop and in Tablet mode it's an ever faithful Android Tab.

WHEEE!

I thought the same thing yesterday, when I read about the Android/Ubuntu software.

This is a great idea. If only more companies would follow in Asus' footsteps. It should be up to the consumer to decide if they want to void their warranty or not and it is even better that Asus is offering the tools to do so. I buy products that are easy to hack and modify to my exact liking, this only helps sway my purchasing and I think I am not alone in this.
