Still, why the hell is Verizon being so sneaky about this?
i think the g-nex is the black sheep of the vzw family of phones. at first it was a good idea to adopt it and nurture it, but when it grew up and rebelled againt being force-fed bloatware vzw decide to excommunicate it from the flock. It was far too late to just abandon the g-nex for someone else to adopt....so they decided to treat it like a bastard child until it was old enough to go out on its own.
i believe vzw is just fulfilling a contract and releasing without any promo or media backing from them. the only reason its even gettig a mention on release day is because its the first ICS device...its one of those sink or swim situations for them. if g-nex swims = vzw wins because they spent so little on advertisement and still get big sales, or g-nex sinks= vzw still has flaggship devices (razr) and the droid 4 coming out soon = they didnt waste money on ads.
so whats the bottom line? vzw still gets paid...and they suck

Now we have a Nexus with two Verizon apps, and a Google app (Wallet) being blocked by Verizon. What's next? Even more bloatware for the next Nexus? Even more restrictions and requirements from Cell companies?
If Google keeps catering and taking demands, Nexus is just going to be "another smartphone".
Sent using common sense.

That being said, even though the Rezound just dropped without much notice, we still knew it was going to drop and when. The nexus no one has said anything that can be confirmed, all we have is about 30 possible launch dates. Here we are 3 days away from the supposed launch and still no one can confirm anything? Seems off. I'm still hoping though, my D1 needs to be retired like yesterday.
