    I have been reading different reports that the Bootloader is unlocked like the XOOM, but then other reports saying its locked like the DX2. I have no doubt we will find out tomorrow, but has anyone received any clear information about this from their "sources"?

    Forum admins over on the Moto site have stated it's locked. Dunno if they can be considered official, but isn't looking good.

    Somewhat related, but any word on confirmation that it is 2.3.4 as opposed to 2.3.3? (really would like to have Google video chat before giving up the free hotspot I get on my current phone.)

    Yeh, some dude over in HoFo has confirmed 2.3.4. Although I'm not sure about Google Video Chat... although it *should* be included.

    A locked bootloader isn't the same as a encrypted one IIRC. Even the Droid 1 has a locked bootloader stock.
    /pedantic loser moment :P

    That said, it wouldn't surprise me if the bootloader is encrypted. Hopefully Verizon will approve of Motorola unencrypting it a'la atrix.

    I read somewhere that it's locked and that it will likely get unlocked from an update per Moto's new bootloader policy.

    Not really, I have already read that it will arrive locked, but it will be unlockable but not unlockable/relockable like the XOOM was. So once it becomes unlocked you can never go back. This is based on first hand knowledge by a user who has seen it in action. So I have some trust in the long term, but no trust in Moto.

    If it's bootloader is anything like the Atrix then flashing any stock SBF will relock the device and u'd have to flash an unlock sbf and issue the unlock command to unlock it
