    What source do you have that states the GNex won't be released until 12/22?

    I agree with you. But if they are indee arguing about this, then I'm on Google's side. Not because of NFC but because this is Google's device. The Nexus line is known for STOCK Android and Verizon is trying to make it to their likings.

    I think this will be the last Nexus phone released on Verizon if Google and Big Red really are going at it like this...call it a hunch.

    Well I was in the mall a few hours ago and decided to stop by the local radio shack. Manager allowed me to hold the nexus in my hand, he said they still don't have a release date and that they were told to hold all of the phones in a secure area in the stock room. He was very highly pissed, I can't believe they are gonna force these companies to sit on these devices for days or weeks without any info just bad form Verizon.

    Well it's about damn time Google stands up for something.

    Verizon, AT&T, and sure Sprint are bending over backwards for Apple, and letting them run everything with the iPhone. Hell I'm sure they have zero say in anything when it comes to the iPhone. It's about time Google started acting like Apple.

    Its amazing what the fruit company is able to get through carriers without any problems or pushbacks. You dont see VZ Navigator/Vcast on any of the idevices.

    That's the thing. There is a big difference between what Apple and Google can do. Verizon has seen what trying to control an apple device will do. Apple will just leave. When Apple leaves so does the iPhone. Which is a big seller for the carriers. To be truthful Apple has shown they don't need multiple carriers to sell the iPhone. So you know they won't hesitate to cut out an uncooperative carrier.

    Verizon knows that they can do what they want to google, because Google can't take Android away from them. Even without the Nexus Verizon would still have Motorola, HTC, Samsung, etc. to fall back on. The prior are all used to how Verizon acts since they've been working with them for a long time.
