It's as simple as this. Verizon wasn't absolute unilateral control over every device on their network. Their contract with Apple says that they can't with iDevices, but Google and Android OEM's have so such deal. Google wants complete control over their Nexus devices and Verizon refuses. Verizon is flat out breaking federal regulations by denying Nexus 7 owners access to the network through a new SIM card, and they still do it anyways. That should say everything there is to say.
