Not very annoying at all, a lot of phones have the adapter. Not to mention this has dnla.

@Joey Lehto Just remember that Verizon is notorious for this, and it comes as zero surprise. At least in this case, I would only assume you have been around this business long enough to know that.
1 year, 6 months ago on Editorial: The Nexus Name Has Died, Can Google Bring It Back?
@Joey Lehto When we first received the Nexus is had 4.0.1, then received an incremental update supposedly OTA, and we were prompted to update upon pulling them out of the box. The version stayed 4.0.1, but the the build had changed along with the radio. Then I want to say about two months ago, we were again prompted coming out of the box to update to 4.0.2. To which they all had 4.0.1 at the time. So my question is..? Those aren't considered updates?
Let's also not forget that we are talking about "Verizon". The dictator carrier of them all. They only gave into Apple because they needed the iPhone so badly. They didn't need the Nexus. However Google wanted to launch on the largest carrier and test that water.
Can't fully agree, because the device sells well. It's still a pure Android experience, to which nothing Verizon has "Does". Either way you look at it, the Nexus sells more today then it ever did.
@Joey Lehto It's still pure Android experience. Which no other device offers. What other device out of the box has ICS stock?
@Get_at_Me I always compare Google's situation to how Microsoft handles Windows. It's on tons of manufacturer's, and they all have their own apps on them. Yes the option to delete is there, which is something many wish Android had without rooting. Nexus needed some sort of lift, because Google wanted to make the brand name more mainstream.
@Joey Lehto I didn't miss anything. Just read the article as it states. In what way besides putting BA? You're saying that the Nexus brand is dead? How so? Please elaborate for me.
@Get_at_Me Was the small window really that big of a deal? Agreed! A big issue was Samsung really didn't go all out for the CPU/GPU on the Gnex, because they didn't want the Nexus selling more then the flagship device for them.
@MargaritoPatino Main reason VZW made it clear that Backup Assistant needed to be on there, was because of how many people used the service. Verizon use to make this mandatory with every sale of a device, that BA be set up. This is why many Verizon locations and retailers do not have Cell Brite or other machines for contact transfer left.
Let's be quite honest with each other. Was Google doing well in Nexus Sales before the "Galaxy Nexus"? No. Did this help them? Yes. Verizon is screwing over this device, but that is one carrier. Yet it's still selling well in a lot of markets for them. Plus to add that they are expanding over numerous carriers has helped them. Yeah Google may of sold out, but why do you think that is? "Money" it talks.
I think this article is drastic. Google is not an OEM and is not controlling the hardware part. The Nexus brand is still very big and in no way dying. My best opinion is they added Galaxy to the name for marketing reasons. To sell more, and bring in more then just hardcore Android users. I mean look at sales of the Galaxy line. It's glaringly obvious why Google did this.
