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.
I'm very excited and it may be my first Nexus simply because its being made by Motorola.
I'm a little surprised that it's taken this long for Motorola to get the chance at the Nexus line. Really would've thought they would release one while under Google's short control. But it's also going to be interesting to see just how innovative they can be with it, especially since it's supposed to be pure Android on there...they're not really going to be able to incorporate their features on the device, like the Moto X stuff.
