It's hard to say this, but I guess sometimes it is good to be an iSheep. Apple has more mojo than google obviously. Apple announces a release date and that's what it is. No ifs, ands, or buts. Honestly, I believe Google has too many irons in the fire. They need to decide what things they want to do and do those things well. It feels like google does so many things that most come out half baked. Examples Google TV, Google+ etc... The Nexus is either not releasing due to Verizon's wants, which Google should have enough pull to push them to do so. Or the Nexus is not launching due to it being half baked which is completely Google's fault.
