After hearing about all the signal issues with the Nexus, I'm anticipating that we may get more support from the developer community than if the Nexus had flawless signal. You can't really strengthen a device's signal reception with an OTA software patch. The issues are hardware related. Verizon would have to increase the signal across the board or increase the sensitivity of the Nexus which I don't see happening (would involve a recall or as I joked in another thread, sending everyone some conductive material and some type of soldering kit).
Before anyone claims that an OTA update will fix the problem, I'd ask if they owned a Thunderbolt which had the same issues that the Nexus appears to be experiencing. We had poor 4G reception as well as the accompanying poor battery life due to 4G connectivity issues. The OTA software fix stabilized how the phone sought out 4G and handled how it attempted to stay connected thus somewhat helping battery life. The 4G signal really didn't improve as software has its limitations when it comes to improving on a physical signal's reception. I would wager that the OTA updates are just a PR move on Verizon's part to appease the Nexus crowd. They're running the Thunderbolt playbook all over again.
The luxury that the Rezound has is that HTC actually learned from the Thunderbolt and thus all the shortcomings that the Nexus crowd is experiencing, HTC is like, "Been there done that". I think some of the Nexus's shortcomings may drive some developers our way. I say give it a few weeks after the first OTA is pushed and people start reporting a more stable phone and realize that it isn't a fix of their poor signal, but just how the phone interprets the weak signal.
