    Google could never have "officially" supported our phones. They believed they would have more cooperation from Verizon than they have received. Google doesn't have access to the CDMA binaries because of patents so Verizon MUST sign the binaries for an OTA to give us calls/data access. The reason Devs can take updated source from Google and compile it into a working ROM is because they use the original signed binaries.

    This is where my knowledge runs thin. I'm not sure how Apple goes about the updates as I've never had an iPhone. Apple doesn't really take any crap from carriers though so I'd assume it has something to do with the carriers (like VZW) being willing to bend over backwards for Apple. If Apple says they have an update they want sent out, I bet VZW wastes no time in approving that sucker.

    No 4G involved either so that may make a diff.

    I disagree on the knowledge runs thin.Thats the jest of it all-Apple takes NO crap from carriers and VZW bends the rules for Apple and I respect them for that.So I wonder,what did former Pres of Google(the one who sat under Jobs)learn from the Teacher while he Graced him with his presence?Thats the stance he shouldve taken with VZW.Like I said,I wouldve perfered Goggle not allow VZW too sell Nexus if they were gonna do this.I couldve delt with AT&Ts service,in exchange for timely updates.

    I figured this out. Since the phone is unlocked they expect us to use it how its meant to be used. Root and hack. They figure we can update it ourselves. My conspiracy theroy
