It could easily be changed, if companies had some balls.
Remember, Apple went to vzw first for the iPhone. When vzw started making demands apple left. Went to AT&T which was more docile. Over the years the iPhone became a huge success. Verizon bent over backwards and let Apple do what they wanted.
Apple is really the only company that has 100% control over their stuff. It's quite interesting to see what has been done with the iPhone and how much freedom Apple has. Considering they're the ones running the show and not the carriers.
After that I'd say Microsoft has some more control. WP7 is a pretty untouched in roughly the same way the iPhone is. Unfortunately, it isn't popular enough for carriers to care about it.
Then you got your NEXUS....
See Apple got where they are by showing the four that they needed the iPhone. I'm sure if Google pushed harder restrictions we could see Google being in charge of Android and having it be more like the iPhone. Android is very popular and I'm sure the carriers wouldn't turn it away.
Then again we'd most likely lose the openness of Android. Is that something we really would like gone?
VERY good point. I would die if Google locked Android. The US carrier situation is in a sick way any way you look at it.
This article was written because Verizon made an announcement. Check out the CNET article.

***Wonders if it was delayed bcuz of the LTE outage***
If this keeps up ICS will be out on the Droid X and most of my reason for getting a Nexus will have gone.
Verizon doesn't want to make sales. Seriously its their track record.
And I agree. Ics is already working alpha on some devices. It wont be that much longer....and the selling power of this phone diminishes. I mean....ics is the main reason we all want it.

What announcement was that? Quoting the CNET article:
"We haven't officially announced a launch date for the Galaxy Nexus," a Verizon Wireless representative said.
The only "announcement" Verizon has made was that they haven't made an official announcement. Leaked sales documents don't count.
the more I think about it the more I lean towards waiting for the Asus podaphone or whatever you call it. Thinking Nvidia Tegra 3 quad core processor, tablet to go with it and ICS....cant wait, hope its all that its cracked up to be and then some. the galaxy nexus just left a sour taste in my mouth waiting and waiting for it. I know its never been officially announced but im over it now
