    next nexus device, not sure. The way that Verizon handled this Nexus, I wouldn't even count on them getting another one. That's just me though.

    From what i have read and these are rumors there will be 5 nexus devises coming out later this year. I do not know if that means one for each carrier or what. And they said that they would be out in October. Like i said this is a rumor i am not saying this is fact

    I have heard this too. Maybe the Nexus 7 and the Nexus Q count. Perhaps the Nexus 7 counts as two since it comes in two amounts of storage. Perhaps they have a new phone with two amounts of storage coming.

    If the rumor is true about Google only selling their phones directly, then the chances of a Verizon version would be extremely slim.

    Edit So to really answer the OP squestion, if you plan on staying on Verizon, the Galaxy Nexus is probably going to be the only Nexus on big red for a while.

    Gotta also ask yourself - will I need a more powerful device???

    Outside of the stock battery & basically non-existent vibration/speakers....this phone is a marvel. Only thing that could make me jealous would be....a much bigger speaker and better stock battery!

    Of course Verizon will get a version of the next Nexus phone if it's sold by Google, they are the largest carrier in the US.

    I'm totally with you. I've been getting more and more problems with my Bionic these past few weeks and am just done with it, I think. I was thinking about waiting for the RAZR HD, but I'm kinda looking at the Nexus as well... Only thing is, I don't know if I want a Samsung phone. The rumor I heard about the next Nexus was that there would be 5 different manufacturers for it, so Moto might be getting in on the action. I'm not sure if I can wait till Oct-Dec for it, though. Have you decided what you were gonna do?

    Yeah. The more and more I think about it, the more I want a Nexus as my next device. I have the Galaxy S3 on pre-order, but I might just cancel it or return it. I dont mind that Ill have to pay more for the device, it will make it easier to justify leaving Verizon entirely and going with a prepaid Nexus. I hate the fact that the Nexus is already getting Jelly Bean but my Thunderbolt hasnt even updated to ICS yet. I suspect the GS3 wont be any better with updates.

    Your thunderbolt will likely never see ICS.

    I want a Nexus, but I don't know if I wanna leave the Moto brand. I'm hoping Moto will be one of the 5 rumored Nexuses this year. I knew, doubtful, but a girl can dream right? I'll suffer with this Bionic and its terrible battery a bit longer, I guess. I do want do what I did with this phone and make a brash purchase again.
