Is this sarcasm Robb? This post seems to contradict your response to sonicmerlin
below. AT&T has the choice to whatever it wishes with Android so long as it abides by the license.

Admittedly, I know little about Android and the other Android offerings. Don't other Android devices need to be rooted to have full "open" access? Can this device not be rooted?
What I don't have out-of-the-box is root access. And while I can get that quite easily, I can understand why these guys don't want to support users who root and then subsequently have problems due to the escalated privileges. There are no applications that require root (for example, I tether on an unrooted phone).

Fair enough...although I don't believe anyone mentioned that this isn't newsworthy.
FWIW, this thread started from the idea that if you don't like the limitations, don't buy the product. No different than many other threads of endless complaining about a limited product/service. Choice is nice.
