Or is it because we know that we will probably never see a Verizon Nexus again?
Kind of depressing to think that for those of us waiting on a Verizon Nexus since the HTC Incredible was first rumored to have initially been VZW's version of the Nexus One that the first, last, and possibly only Verizon Nexus (phone) we will ever see was the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Yeah thanks for that Big V.
For those of us who jumped ship to a carrier where the Nexus is supported, we have gotten the chance to experience what a true nexus experience is like with fast updates and an overall clean interface. Unless Google botch the next few nexus devices I am convinced my next phone will be a Nexus based on my experience with my Nexus 5.
For those on Verizon, who are there because they are holding on for dear life to their unlimited data or they live in an area where Verizon is the only practical option, cheer up as you may not ever get a chance at another Nexus (phone) but you may have the next best thing in Moto. If Motorola continues with their quick updates and clean look then Nexus fans on Verizon may not be left out of the fun. With the Moto developer edition devices you are basically a step away. Unfortunately you may have to pay more for it than a nexus and you do not get factory images released right away so you can flash the next update, but if you can handle those minor issues then you are practically part of the Nexus family (eh maybe not as close as google play edition devices but as of late Moto have been beating google play edition and some nexus devices in getting the latest software). So to Moto fans here is to you having the closest thing to a Google experience device that you can possibly have on a Verizon phone without having to flash an AOSP rom.
