    I have not seen any Google branding on the photos of the Verizon LTE Galaxy Nexus. Is anybody else concerned about what this could mean for the device? I am slightly concerned that this is an indicator that updates won't be coming directly from google, or that the phone will be locked down even if it is pure google in other respects. Thoughts?

    A little.

    I'm just surprised Google would allow it considering they designed the phone and the software.

    I don't see what the problem is. Once you root it/unlock the bootloader, it shouldn't be a concern. Unless I'm wrong.

    I couldn't care less what they put on outside of the phone as long as vzw doesn't mess with the os/updates.

    "Google" is the first thing that pops up on the boot animation. I guess that's enough for them!

    I just wish that Verizon kept their grubby hands off the Nexus, like the OG droid, which was a Pure Google Experience device. Even if the GNex has only 2 Verizon apps on it, it has been tainted IMHO. :icon_evil:
