    Google doesn't officially support CDMA binaries so VZW has to test new builds that function well with CDMA technology. They take their sweet time probably because of all the devices that VZW carries.

    wont be for awhile. vzw 'testing' takes up to a decade. LOL they want US to have the best experience, so they will not give US anything we want. :icon_eek: They have determined they know better then the consumers.

    vzw will release it when they feel that they're done testing. When that time comes is up in the air. Keep a look out at the news section, you'd see it there first or another thread in this section regarding the update.

    Their testing is probably giving the update to 1 employee to see how it runs. I mean it sucks that it takes a while but an article I read did make sense. Over time devices get old and they take away resources for those devices and out them on new projects. Our nexus is not the new device anymore so focus has shifted to other phones. Then at the end of the article it stated if you want the update so badly flash it haha

    Its simpler than it seems and this is because the dev community is AMAZING.

    You are quite generous. LOL. I'd bet we don't even see it before winter, given Verizon's constant shift on what device they're focusing. By fall, their Galaxy Nexus offering will be a thing of their past and I'd bet Apple's lawsuit against the Nexus won't be helping.

    None wait for android police,android central,phandroid,droidforums or other site to bring the news. I don't trust cnet and engadget they make up lie sometime to make android developers or manufacture look bad. Just for money and false advertisement on news.
