SO my question is: Will they retain backdoor access to the device after I buy it.  IOW, can they, like Amazon, access the device without my authorization (NOT just an OK on a EULA) exercise police like powers to seize property from me, and conceivably even brick the unit (ala Apple IPhone)?

If not, if they actually respect their customers, then I'm definitely interested.  If not, then I'll keep looking and waiting.
