    The promise of the Google Nexus 6 on Verizon's network has been a long time in coming. Big Red assured the press that the Nexus 6 would come to their network, but here we are, six months (and a brand new year) after the launch, yet still no Nexus 6 for Verizon.

    Of course, savvy and cash-rich folks could purchase their Nexus 6 separately and get it activated on Verizon, but if you were holding out for it to get it on contract or through Verizon's Edge program, you simply had to wait... and wait...

    And, wait no more! Look at that link below! Verizon's own website indicates that the Google Nexus 6 is "Coming Soon!" That's fantastic news for you stalwarts out there.

    Here's our Nexus 6 section in the forums: Nexus 6 Android Forum at DroidForums.net

    Don't know whether to say "about time" or think that any and everybody who wanted a Verizon Nexus 6 already found away to get a nexus 6 through Google or one of the other carriers. People have moved on from 2014 they are now waiting to see the S5 and M9.

    I just don't understand why it's so hard for them to simply release phones when they hit the market.

    I think some folks tend to forget: there are plenty of people that are still in contracts that are soon to expire. Yea, not cool it took so long, but they will sell some...

    Agree, they will sell a few but by now many have heard the rumbling of another Galaxy on the horizon. Majority of the hardcore Nexus fans that wanted a nexus 6 already bought one. But you are right @PereDroid, there are some who were still on contract who were waiting for Verizon and they may snag it.

    Tooooooooo late. The phone market moves at way to fast paced to just sit on a phone and release it months after the original release date. The only way I would still buy this is if Verizon sold it at say $400- $450 off contract but I know that won't be the case so I'd rather just save a little extra and get the M9 when that comes out.

    Plus if it took them that long, what unspeakable things did they do to the phone to brand it?

    I don't think it will be like the other n6's...******Rumor*** it's been rumored that vzw and moto made a carrier specific.. 4000mah battery is the big change from what I've seen rumored...

    I really wanted the Nexus 6 personally and was waiting and waiting for it to appear on Verizon but now that it's been this long I'm very likely going to pass and wait for something else

    I kind of really hope that's true, but I can see them making other not-so-desirable changes to cancel out the excitement.

    on the move..

    I haven't heard any rumors about a bigger battery on the VZW Nexus 6, but it would be cool to see. I am quite sure we will probably see a huge Verizon logo on the device though... :D
