    I'm just happy that I'm not on the East Coast... that way, no matter what happens, I can wake up and check on here and I will know for sure if people have been buying them or not before the stores here have even opened.
    If you always seem to have drama in your life, you are probably the one causing the drama.
    If customer service representatives or restaurant servers always seem to be rude to you, you are probably the one being rude.
    If your computer always seems to be freezing up on you, you're probably doing something wrong.

    In my experience, drama begets drama, rudeness begets rudeness, and ineptitude begets ineptitude.

    Im not talking about making money off of selling the phone. Im talking about negotiations with google about the mobile pay feature. If verizon could NOT include Gwallet and implement ISIS...sure...delaying sales now would end up making them more money down the road.

    In my opinion many buyers may not even know what bloat is. They just now it has preinstalled apps. Being vanilla/pure google is not a selling point that is going to win the hearts of the typical consumer strolling into a storefront. Ive seen verizon salesmen pitch the hell out of the Iphone when it first came to verizon....even though there were much better phones in the store. Ive seen them actually steer customers who were looking and playing with an android phone away from it toward the iphone and how its the "best" phone they have now. And the customers just this epiphany look in their eyes...."wow.....BEST phone". Start talking about features...most people will start yawning.

    Then there's us....give us the phone...NOW. :P I dont care whats going on with it. If there WAS any bugs to squash...google will fix it quickly....or the dev community.

    Serious question here...

    Knowing that already they have had some hardware issues... Knowing that VZW has put some bloat on it, and that going forward, you will NOT get "pure Google" without delays, that updates will have to go through VZW(and you know how that goes, present situation a prime example)... Knowing that it is not really faster than the Razr or Rezound, etc... Knowing that certain things like Google Wallet will be missing, knowing that the Nexus won't work like a USB Mass Storage device because it has only internal storage, etc...

    What at this point is the real appeal of it? If it isn't faster, if it doesn't have more features, if it has issues and if you still have to wait on VZW to release code with bloat, what is the real advantage?

    is getting ICS a month before your friends really worth it?

    No chance any other phone will have ICS a month after this one haha. But that being said, I think its appealing to a lot of people here cuz it's open. Do what you want with it, run whatever software you want on it etc. No restrictions.

    Also, it's still going to get updates from Google, there won't be any 5 month delays between updates.

    I hardly think of My Verizon and Back Assistant as bloat. Just disable them if you don't use them but a lot of people do.
