@JesseJameson google should advertise the nexus phones then. They played into the system. Manufacturers and carriers have their own agenda which generally does mess well with a "nexus device". All the other carriers committed to the gs2 and the iphone 4s was just released. Tough spot for google but they shouldnt be in the ring looking for sales. The android eco system is crowded enough already with a new flagship being unveiled or released every month. If its not one manufacturer its another.....google should stick to evolving the os and stay out of the sales end of the business....

@JesseJameson i cant disagree with you here...it still sucks though. My thought process is If you're going to start playing favorites with carriers, don't even bother developing nexus devices anymore....Google made a decision awhile back to get into the hardware mix (N1)....Not to compete with carriers or manufacturers, but to show them what android was capable of on the hardware and software sides. They should stick to that philosophy and not get mixed up with carriers.
@JesseJameson But it wasn't necessary to get in bed with VZW.....There shouldn't have been an exclusive carrier for this phone. I think a major issue for Google was the timing of the US Galaxy S2 launches and the GN unveiling.
@Tuliomesa82 I think Google could partner up with a company like ASUS on Nexus device
I agree completely!!!! I think Google went temporarily insane giving VZW US exclusivity on the GN. What were they thinking? That launching their flagship device on America's largest network would somehow catapult the Nexus name into mainstream??? Meanwhile, the IPhone 4S launched on 3 US carriers at the same time. I really hoped they learned their lesson.
