It will likely get root pretty soon upon release. Despite HTC's greater efforts, all of their phones end up being rooted. I am imagine it will be roughly the same procedure as with the most recent HTC phones that have been released. But to my knowledge, nobody really has gotten their hands on the device who has spoken out. We have some pictures from an anonymous source, but no words to accompany them.
Yeah, it is probably a little premature. But fret not, it will be rooted. And hopefully the Revolutionary team will get its bootloader cracked with a quickness. If not, HTC will hopefully add it to their list of unlockable phones. Though Revolutionary would be ideal.
