    Thanks Preach! Good article. This is the closest we'll ever get to something "untouched" by Verizon. So I'm content. :icon_ lala: I'm just thinking of it like an OG Droid! :biggrin:

    Eh... sounds like someone really really really is physically unable to wait two days for the phone and has to make up this article. Conclusion- So what... You can see verizon is on the first stair of the pool. To those that really care this much about being the pure google experience, just be happy that for the most part, it is a true google experience, and that verizon didnt jump from the diving board.

    -I had to use/finish the pool metaphor.

    Unlockable bootloader - CHECK. Lack of bloatware - CHECK (My Verizon is actually useful for everyone, Backup Assistant is useful for people coming from other non-Android Verizon phones, both can be disabled). Lack of skin - CHECK. Likelihood of faster software update cycles - CHECK.

    "Untouched" enough for me.

    Google just needs to save up and buy vz. Technically though apple with its 80 billion dollars is closer to that. :happy3:
