Isn't this anti-competitive? Someone should sue Verizon over this. This is a trash move by Big Red.

I'm almost certain 3rd party devs will find ways around it. It has already been shown to work on the GSM version http://www.engadget....nexus-complete/

According to this article it is anti-competitive . Of course according to the article the Galaxy Nexus won't be out till January 2012, so either this guy isn't well informed or he knows something we don't. Either way I figured I would throw it out there for all to see.

This is fairly "old" news though. But yes its bogus. However I wouldn't utilize this anyways. Just don't trust it fully.

Do we know this has actually been confirmed? Every article I read says its been "confirmed" but doesn't actually say who confirmed it other then the generic "a spokesperson I met with". Let's be honest there have been untold numbers of "confirmed" launch days for the phone by the same "spokesperson I met with" that have all since passed.

I don't doubt Verizon would pull at stunt like this, but would Google be on board with it? Also like Remyx stated earlier it seems blatantly anti-competitive(illegal?) especially when Verizon owns it's own version of Google Wallet - Isis.

sorry if i seemed snappy. wasnt trying to be. honest. i think way to much could go wrong with something like that. way to many thieves out there. wouldnt take long for someone to figure out a way to pull something really crooked off.
