No, we don't know that the Nexus One IS the Passion yet. There's no proof of that, and even if it WAS the Passion that doesn't mean that Verizon would even be getting a variant of it, because as I've pointed out...both past two Android developer phones, Dream and Magic, NEVER came as some other variant to other U.S. carriers. They were only on T-Mobile. So, it DOESN'T make sense to assume that Verizon is getting the Passion, if that's even what Google ends up calling it when it comes to T-Mobile. Because an Android developer phone that was eventually released to T-Mobile has NEVER come to another U.S. carrier in the same or in another form factor.
I understand your thinking, and I used to think the same thing. But there's just no evidence to really back it up or make me assume that anymore. See what I'm saying?
