motorola-moto-e-20The newly announced Moto E from Motorola happens to make a fair number of waves ever since it was revealed, where this highly affordable smartphone does come with a dual-core Snapdragon 200 SoC, 1GB RAM, a 4.3-inch display, as well as a 5MP camera at the back, costing all of just $129. It sure as heck sounds like a bargain, and just like how moths are attracted to a strong light, so too, will the Motorola Moto E attract its fair share of different developers of custom firmwares.

And of course, where a custom ROM developer is concerned, their worst nightmare would be the presence of locked bootloaders. Motorola has somwewhat gained a reputation for enforcing such locked bootloaders in their products in the past, but where the Moto E is concerned, it would bodes well for the masses, since Motorola has just announced that the Moto E will be part of its Bootloader Unlock program. Just as its name suggests, the latter would enable users of Motorola devices to unlock the bootloaders of their devices in a jiffy, and easily, too.

Having said that, are you interested in picking up the Motorola Moto E as your next entry level smartphone of choice, or would you prefer the LTE-enabled Motorola Moto G instead?
