Also, I bet all the carriers get this phone eventually. I would also bet that this phone comes on Verizon with a locked bootloader, and the dev community will shout "blasphemy!" At $350 for unlocked, how can anyone justify staying on their plans with their respective carrier, especially if they are not on a family plan?

    I wonder what will become of the Galaxy Nexus. It's MIA in the Google Play store, guess they don't have any remaining stock left? I was hoping they would "Touchpad" it, selling the rest at an incredible discount.
    ATT has 3 gigs per phone still...my S3 is unlocked and will have 4.2 in no time. I'm on 4.1.2 AOKP and love it. Nexus is great but even my Nexus 7 tablet isn't stock. Its running a ROM and custom kernel. I dropped Verizon and went back to AT&T. I was shocked at how little data I actually use. The "I have unlimited" argument is moot for me.

    I don't think carriers will get this phone. I think they will get variants of it with options and not being a Nexus phone, but I think Google has a thing for less hardware specs. It shows the power of their OS. It can run on less hardware. I dunno, I like Nexus devices, but this one doesn't work for me.

    This. I really had zero expectations of this device coming to VZ or Sprint. I'm quite happy to see a reasonably priced non-contract device. Sony and Google are the only two major players working to keep things affordable and knowing how VZ prices items there's no doubt they would have wanted to set this at a ridiculous level. If only T-Mobile would get some worthwhile coverage.

    n Google Play Store 'Coming Soon'; 8GB $299 Unlocked & 16GB $349 Unlocked

    Hmmm. I will still have my droid 3 until at least july of next year. I may get one after that for straight talk. Its still a deal breaker almost that there is only 16gb. Im sure they will have a 32 out by then though lol.

    Pure and simple

    This is a junk phone not worthy of being labeled "Nexus". Mediocre on board storage. No way to increase storage via SD slot. No 4G LTE. I don't buy LG's reasoning for it. The LTE networks aren't good or mature enough so they'll wait until next year? Really?

    I wouldn't give you $50 for this waste of time device.

    I think it still has a lot to do with google drive still. if they come out with a 32 or 64gb version by next year I may be heading to straight talk! Lol

    The no MicroSD slot was a given, as no recent Nexus device has had one. The killer for me though is no 32GB option, and no LTE!!

    A question for the more technically savvy out there. I was under the impression that all of the new chipsets were integrating the LTE radio. Was I mistaken?

    I doubt it would contain radios for all the different LTE frequencies in the U.S. and abroad, not to mention the phone would need to have different antennas for each carriers version of LTE.
