    Since all the CDMA devices are gone, I'm more or less going with the idea that they are separating them to eliminate confusion.

    Hi guys and gals, wanted to drop in and say hello. For those that are still having the "one-way audio" issue with their Galaxy Nexus (Nexi?) devices, please Star the issue on Google's web site. I've done a little digging and read plenty of people are having this problem and replacing the device does not fix the issue. The link is here. Thanks, and GO GIANTS!!

    Sometimes my synapses do fire in the correct fashion. ;)

    I do like how that has made it to the bottom of the article so that it doesn't spoil the sensationalism of the rest of the article.

    Maybe so, but if Google decides CDMA devices don't get developer phone status, I am going to go with their experience with Verizon pushing them to that decision...

    Possibility if it is the case, but there was a Sprint Nexus before there was a Verizon Nexus and there is another Sprint Nexus just over the horizon. If they really wanted to get rid of anything I would think a relationship with Verizon in general would be the first choice.

    It's curious, because it would mean that for the first time, a Nexus is not a developer phone. If this all ends up being true, is Google going to change what the Nexus by definition is? Or is the GNex the last Nexus either Verizon or Sprint will ever see, at least until LTE VOIP replaces CDMA completely...

    I could say that nothing big corporations do surprises me any more, and while that would be the truth, the real reason I'm replying is to nominate your submission for Best Matched Post with Avatar for 2012, Freestyle Division. :D

    Kinda seems like most of my posts match my avatar. Not sure what that says about me though.

    Translation anybody? Are they saying that those who unlock and install custom ROMs are not "supported"? Are they disavowing even stock builds?

    Google to English:

    CDMA is different from GSM. The files for GSM can be used by developers without fear of screwing people up too much. The CDMA files have been used by a bunch of N00B devs and people lost the ability to make calls or get data so we pulled the info for now. It will come back later when we have proper instructions so the n00bs don't mess people up. BTW, we hate Verizon and wish they would leave us alone.

    Maybe I can understand taking a beat with respect to the devs that customize and screw up. But even those who have not modded a thing? What did Google expect?

    I intended only the highest compliment, I assure you. If you look at your post minus the bad question part, I think you'll see why I am still in stitches.

    My dog looks down and covers his nose with his paws when I read stories of corporate shenanigans to him, so I can totally relate. ;)

    Haha. Thanks OTD. And Early. You both were pretty much spot on the entire time, OTD about the reasoning, and Early about DL jumping to conclusions.

    That comes from spending far too much time watching people freak out and jump to conclusions over the simplest of things. I don't think I can count the number of times I had to say the phrase, "Everyone calm down..." during the mega thread. lol

    Well this also explains why there has been little development with the 4g xoom.

    Yeah. Can you imagine what that thread would have done with news like this? If Google announced prior to release they weren't supporting it as a "developer" phone? Yikes.

    Ha, I remember it well. Here is on OBG from OTD:

    Whoa! Everyone needs to calm down. The phone exists and it will come. I understand that many of you have phones that are close to their EOL, but there is no reason to jump off buildings. We've had this happen a couple of times, it sucks, but not every net rumor is true. We are were we have always been and know what we have always known. The phone will come this year. Most of us will get the phone when it launches and, from what I've seen, we will all be very happy people.

    I know we are on this crazy post rush, but everyone take a step back and relax for a minute or two. Talk with your family or a friend. Get the phone out of your mind for a couple of minutes and you will realize that this date or any other date is not the end of the world.

    The Nexus is coming. Not even Verizon can stop that at this point. It will come and it IS awesome.

    Fun Fact: 93 instances of "calm down" on the superthread, mostly from OTD, Steven and...BB. :D

    As you can see, my day has slowed down in anticipation of the weekend. ;)

    I'll bet a repeated-phrase analysis of the pre-release thread would prove interesting.

    Man if anyone reads the official explanation it says that its cuz or radio singing files meaning that open source android builds will not give you the ability to make calls it get data ... and that's 100% BS I know alot of people here are rooted and modded as myself and we have no probloms making phone calls or reviving or transmitting data .... so if it that aintt the problom then it has to be some Google verizon crap .... and for their customers sake they need to get over themselfs and let it be ...

    My vote Google start your own dam Mobile service and end all thus crap


    Edit: end rant

    I'd be interested to know how many time "hate" and "Verizon" were used in the same sentence.
