    According to the latest rumint, Verizon may not be finished shocking their customers. Not only did they recently change their minds on their plan to throttle hi-volume Unlimited Data users, it also appears they may actually get the next Nexus Android phone!

    According to unnamed sources which spoke with the folks at Pocketnow, Big Red is actually " ready to embrace the next Nexus phone," and plans to start with Google's Nexus 6 as soon as it is announced later this month. This is obviously in stark contrast to their policy for the last several years of avoiding Nexus devices, but perhaps things are shifting inside of Verizon. Perhaps they are encouraged because the Nexus 6 will likely be a Motorola product...

    Feel free to do a happy dance now just in case this turns out to be true. :D

    Not to split hairs, but I always assumed that like the first few Nexi, recent versions were also offered to Verizon, who then stipulated all kinds of Android-unfriendly requirements. And Google replied, "screw you."

    So if the rumor is true, it could either mean: (a) like the iPhone experience, Verizon realized they were losing lots of revenue by all their extra stipulations, which they've loosened, or (b) for some odd reason Google has decided to accept the terms, which basically means the Verizon version WON'T be a Google experience phone. I'll be curious to see which version of events proves true. What am I betting??? I'll eat my left shoe if the VZW Nexus comes with vanilla L!

    Been there, done that. Not very eager to repeat. But...... more choice is usually better than less choice.

    I spoke yesterday with a high end technician at Verizon and he confirmed the Nexus is coming to Verizon, and that it's Motorola's phone. May not be big news of a big surprise but my source is reliable.

    Have the Nexus phones in the past come rootable with unlocked bootloaders? If I can get it with 64GB and it's rootable/unlockable, I could live w/out the SD Card.
