Look at the mess that is the Verizon Galaxy "Nexus." Until LTE is an open standard, Google will likely not use it in their direct offerings. (I would bet there will be an exact replica though only for Verizon, but NOT a Google experience phone.)
Also, it is HSPA+ capable. In my area, T-Mobile gets 11-12M down, which is as good if not better than Verizon.
Gotta look at the big picture.
