True. I will remain skeptical but optimistic on the subject. Everyone knows Google's stance on Nexus devices. Everyone also knows Verizon's stance on Android devices in general. Maybe they found some middle ground? Maybe Google said take it or leave it. We'll just have to wait and see.
Edit: And to add to this, Verizon Samsung devices in the past have had easily defeated bootloaders (locked but not encrypted - huge difference) anyway, so I truly believe there's nothing to worry about here.
^Same goes for the HTC phones, bootloaders are unlocked on VZW. loki, another thing to remeber is with the options for custom kernals, the GN is that much more future proof.
I've not had any problems with my (CM7 with incredikernel) Dinc.Ive also heard some things about signal quality issues in general with HTC phones. I don't want anything to do with that.
I will wait a while after release of all three, see what's on the horizon and go from there. I'd kind of like a bit faster processor and 4G, but otherwise happy with the Dinc.
I would like to add, that I as a non-dev "regular user" fully appreciate the kernel importance. I like basically vanilla android, but want kernel flexibility to optimize the hardware and get updates without waiting on the carriers. Maybe this (the incredikernel) is why I have no signal issues with the Dinc? T-bolt users I believe have had similar experiences.
