    i wonder if google deliberately hasnt released any info as to a release date or much up til now in regards to the GN because they really want people to buy the razr considering that they did acquire Motorola Mobility didnt they? hmm?

    but really my question is why they chose samsung to develop the nexus rather than motorola?

    Google isn't selling the phone, Verizon is. The release date has nothing to do with Google or Samsung.

    Look at the timing. While Google has agreed to buy moto mobile I'm not sure the deal is closed yet. The gsn development and accompanying agreements with Samsung had to have been in place long before the moto deal was announced.

    also, although Google has purchased Motorola Mobility (or is in the process of doing so), they have stated numerous times that the two companies are still separate.

    I'm sure they did, I can't imagine that purchasing a 12.5 billion dollar company was something Larry Page just woke up one day and decided to do for fun. But Eric Schmidt has said quite a few times that they are remaining separate, so it's not surprising that Google isn't using Moto to monopolize Android/ICS

    The acquisition was less about Google acquiring Motorola and more about obtaining their patents to fight off the onslaught of Apple and Microsoft.
