ASUS this morning teased some news regarding the locked and encrypted bootloader on its quad-core Transformer Prime tablet — and it’s good news. A bootloader unlock tool indeed is on the way.

It’s been a couple dates since the last rumored Galaxy Nexus launch date surfaced. But a couple of things have changed since then. First, we’ve heard through our sources that Verizon’s finally picked a launch date. (Remember that the Nov. 11 memo we saw was a “work in progress.”) Secondly, this one makes a little more sense.
