    Given that the new Nokia N1 is Intel-based and will come with Android 5.0 (alebeit from Feb 2015), maybe there is a glimmer of hope?

    Surely the Acer S500 Cloud mobile sim-free at 169.99 including accessories at Expansys is a better deal? Yes, the battery is pretty average but that 720p screen!

    For me the big question is this: something like this or Raspberry Pi?

    Somehow I get the feeling that all this talk of an unlocked bootloader and asking them if they could included root access made them look twice at their current ROM and go back to the drawing board so they could close any loopholes...

    Actually it is not. The search provider you are referring to I assume is Baidu, whilst this phone is made by a small electronics reseller, Beidu...

    So much for this phone being under £200 then...

    Interestingly enough, the Verizon version of the Galaxy SIII has a locked bootloader but someone managed to root it anyway. Perhaps something useful for the San DIego?

    I am hoping that they will follow HTC and release a method of unlocking it but yet again with Orange involved it may be trickier than that...

    Well, after playing with it today I am seriously tempted. But as Sebastian mentioned before, I told the Intel rep at the Orange shop that as long as they keep the bootloader locked I will not be buying it. According to him, he has had a few people telling him exactly the same thing in the past couple days. Apparently all feedback is passed on to Intel and they are listening (taking that with a pinch of salt but a gran of hope is better than none!).

    In that case it is safe to say there is very little hope. I guess Orange will be punished for this the very same way they were punished with the Monte Carlo and SFII i.e. low sales.

    Paul,

    Everyone here appreciates your work and personally completely understand your "frustration" with this, which, if I dare to take a guess, was the doing of mostly Orange. However, and please accept my apologies for insisting on this, would it not be worth reaching out to Intel directly and making a case? Orange is after all famous for being, well, rather useless.

    Thanks

    It's still a shame we have to start looking at lesser devices for the same money. Damn you Orange!

    Expansys actually have it for even less, at a snip under £210.

    Well back to the Huawei G300 then unless anyone else comes out with a similar bargain anytime soon (ZTE?). By the way is it not worth reaching out to Intel directly and highlighting the issues with this approach?

    Paul,

    Just had a look at your earlier tweet. Am I right in assuming that Orange have confirmed that the bootloader is locked or have they been their usual useful self and not bothered responding yet?

    Thanks
