VZW + No Bloat = Never happened. That's how it's unusual. This will be VZW's first Nexus Device, if it lands that way.ro6666lt said:bloat's missing... but how is that unusual for a nexus device? VZW or not, it seems pretty normal to me... super excited, though.
I'm not denying that vzw might get a nexus... but there's no proof. Simply a maybe sortta kinda dump that doesn't have bloat. Frock......malac0da said:Point is more proof that vzw is getting a nexus.

I would say that the "shock" is centered around the fact that we've had rumors of TWO phones along with people being pessimistic and expecting the worse. For lack of official naming, let's call them "Samsung Galaxy Nexus" (a vanilla "Pure Google Experience" phone) and the "Droid Prime" (a customized, Verizon-specific device that may have similarities to other phones, like the Atrix/Bionic, but is still not a vanilla device). Well, if there was a Verizon-specific one as well as a "pure" one, some speculation based on that + the lacking of VZW ever having a Nexus device in the past would lead one to believe that all other carriers get a Nexus while VZW customers only get the Droid Prime version, which would mean that all of the awesome development/updates would be for the device on all the other networks while our "Droid"-branded device would lag behind.R1Lover said:Why is it a shock that the nexus prime will be on verizon? I find this silly that people are in shock of this news?
Either Google or Samsung, I forget which, was reported as saying they postponed to allow more time for people to pay their respects or something to that effect.ro6666lt said:Hopefully the delay isn't going to be that long. I doubt its a Jobs thing, but if it is... Oh well... Guess we'll just have to wait, regardless...
