    Not just that. I have a strong feeling they were expecting and now are trying to find ways to get a different share of RAZR/Rezound/Nexus sales that what is turning up. I really think they over ordered RAZR's thinking it would be a huge seller based on build material and thinness. Probably had some odd EXTREME control of the Galaxy Nexus deal negotiated(google/samsung would have to give them this unless they went on their own and had to sell the device full retail and that might have burned Samsung in general and this is why I am so annoyed about the FCC rules stuffs being ignored).

    I am still pretty sure the only reason Apple works well with VZW is they are both OCD type companies that think the same so it makes negotiations over what device should be and how release should be handled nonissues.

    That truly would be awful and defeat half of the purpose that the nexus exists for

    No, it's a Nexus. It's been confirmed to always receive the latest updates DIRECTLY from Google, instead of having to be adjusted by Samsung and approved by Verizon.

    True. Its hard to tell and all speculation. But interesting either way. I was just thinking as a business person. $299 for a 16gb model is better than $249. Then I'd offer both options when sales start to subside at the price points you suggest. Then discount from there then sales slow again. Plus, don't forget this also makes other more profitable phones more enticing due to storage options.

    Who other than Verizon knows at this point. At least now we're seeing why it was said the phone is Verizon's.

    My silly conspiracy theories sometimes have a way of working themselves into investment analysis blogs - I'll be watching for this one. Last one was within the last 6 weeks, don't recall which one. ;) :)

    Someone at Google went into their site and clicked the edit button. Either the original 16/32GB spec or the now 16GB only is a mistake. Our problem is we have no way of knowing which is the mistake at this point. :(

    You know where 16GB makes a lot of sense... suddenly the RAZR and Rezound start to look much more competitive.
