I'm a dreamer but my cup is half full at least.
The only issue I see with that is the the CDMA Gnex was 600+ full retail even after the GSM version came to Google Play at $350. Now if Google were to make the Nexus 5 VoLTE capable with band 13 LTE support & no CDMA radio, it could hypothetically sneak it onto Verizon's network once Verizon starts up that it themselves. Though I don't see that happening until mid or end of 2014.
