    Probably because after going to all the trouble (see the arguments in the comments about who deserved credit for Swype) it came out that Swype is not a free app, is copyrighted, and limited to devices intended in their OEM and Beta programs.

    Aside from apk sharing of this type going against our rules, Swype threatened legal action against XDA, so please, protect your AndroidForums.com - thank you! :)

    That's how I use Printer Share, through the Google cloud for a non wifi printer and direct with a wifi printer.

    FlexT9 might be a good option for you. I was using it before I got Swype working and it was pretty similar, not exactly Swype, but comparable

    Still getting random reboots every few days, and the one I just had was worrisome - I was opening up the browser when the phone froze up momentarily, just as it does right before every reboot; but then, right as it was rebooting, I heard a popping noise - like when you pull a plug out of a socket too quickly and you hear a quick pop of electricity. Anyone had anything like this?

    I have not had any of this. As far as I can tell I've only had a handful of random reboots since getting my phone. I hope its all ok.

    Oh, I'd be sending that puppy back in a heart beat! I'm still knocking on wood, but I haven't had any reboots on my replacement phone, and only had maybe 4 or 5 on the first Nexus I had.

    But a lot of those posts are quite informative and have taught me things. And in a way that didn't make my eyes glaze over. :D

    I am siding with you.

    But if I were to play devil's advocate, Google decided since the carrier has too much control in a CDMA environment, they had to jump through too many hoops to continue to support it as a developer phone.

    Or Droid Life needed to rebuild traffic since their pre-release readership has always been here.

    Take your pick.

    j/k just totally kidding

    Seriously though, even Droid Life comes out and says they're just covering bases. Pretty hot title tho. :)

    The first thing I will say, in quoting the amazing Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy:

    Being removed from that page doesn't mean Google is dumping the phone anymore that it means the phone is going to quit working. Even if Google has decided to no longer make the phone a developer device it doesn't mean that they are no longer going to support the phone or that the phone will never see another update.

    I think Kellex gives out some amazing information, but in this case I think he is hop scotching right over a conclusion before the game is finished.

    Haha!

    Like I posted in the thread on this subject in the GNex forum, I think we all remember when Google changed the storage spec of the LTE GNex to 16GB on the google.com/nexus page. So for now I am leaning toward the explanation that some gungho employee inadvertantly removed the CDMA devices from the list somehow, similar to that little snafu...

    Another update by Kellex, saying almost exactly what you just said.

    edit: And said it came from Phandroid... haha.

    Just can't imagine Google and VZW playing chicken with each other, at the risk of alienating the consumers. Can they be that stupid? Bad question?
