So if this phone comes with Verizon apps that cannot be uninstalled, will we still be able to get updates directly from Google?

I am worried that Verizon will somehow screw this up.

I know you can root, but I would prefer not having to root just to get OS updates.

While they can't be uninstalled, they can be disabled. And we aren't 100% sure how the updating system will work. We do know they will come direct from Google but we aren't sure if that means Verizon has to poke around first?

I don't think there is much Verizon could screw up besides the launch (and they seem to be doing a good job at that).

I think this is where most people make bad assumptions. There are no "rules" to what a Nexus is. A Nexus is whatever Google wants it to be. Whether that's "bloatware" or not.

Google never posted a set of rules to what a Nexus device is, we only have assumptions based on what they've done in the past.

Right, I know they can be disabled, but here is what I'm thinking:
  1. Google releases an update to Android.
  2. The update does not contain Verizon apps.
  3. Verizon has to verify their apps work with the updated OS.
  4. Once verified, Verizon gets a special build of the Android OS that includes their apps, which cannot be uninstalled.
  5. Verizon releases the update.

Hey everyone,
What have I missed so far today? Any more info from any reps? At this point Dec. 8th is basically confirmed but I'd just like to know if there's any new info, or if I would possibly be able to waltz into my local Verizon store and snatch one up early

We've been hearing 8th or 9th. Hopefully no later than the 9th

It isn't "basically confirmed" though. Kellex and his sources say the 9th. I know it's only one day, but the 8th is FAR from set in stone...

Any more mumbo jumbo about the 15th...like we were hearing yesterday? Or does it seem like it is between the eigth and ninth? Thanks.

FINALLY!

Will Steven get the iPhone?

Will he be lured by its sugary goodness?

Will Siri sing her siren songs to Steven, slinging seductive Samsung slurs superimposing subliminal Serengeti-like scenes subconsciously and sensually beyond Steven's capacities for rational thought?

Will Steven's eyes go into auto-rotation trying to juxtapose retinal and HD displays?

Discerning fans need to know!!

By the way - many of you know that Steven and I are in constant touch - what I didn't tell Steven was that I recorded his spoken travelogue getting to the stores....

Okay, since I cannot be the only one checking it here is how to check if the nexus prime is in the preorder system yet (hopefully, the rezound was never in the system but the dinc2 and razr were)

go to https://preorder.verizonwireless.com/iconic/ hit new customer (it's faster) and check both under new phones and try typing it in accessories to see if it shows up there

Yep, count me in that group. My Omnia II has been great (love the stereo speakers, I will really miss them!) but I am getting tired of the nonexistent development and old outdated programs. I've been out of contract for a year and patiently waiting for the GS2 ever since it was announced @ MWC in Feb... but we all know how that ended up for Verizon.

Bring on the Nexus! I am looking forward to Android as I finally feel it's polished and matured enough with ICS for me to make the switch.

Gotta figure out how to get Android to look like my Titanium 6.5.5 setup.

Episode IV tonight BB? I don't know about that guy, Bedlam and the B1G 10 Championship game are on tonight. Throw him a curve ball and say you want to watch football and you will have to watch Star Wars tomorrow. He wont mind, he clearly wants to just spend time with you.


Boom, I just scored you a 2nd "not" date.
