From what we have seen so far from Apple in the last couple launches of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G, this is probably very unlikely.

Symbian Belle

HTC Launches OpenSense Open Source SDK!

opensense-sdk

One of the things I like about HTC is that they are going to open source all of their HTC Android smartphones and tablets. Which is great for people who are trying to install new ROMs, unlock their phones, etc…etc…

Finally, HTC launches OpenSense SDK, which is basically a development environment for their HTC devices. The new site also hints at “Unlock Bootloader” feature, which will be coming soon and phones that have been locked as of recently like the HTC Evo 4G, will benefit greatly from users being able to root their phones again.
