    MAXX HD all the way. The phone is much quicker and is more efficient on battery power. The display is much better as well. It is a more future proof option and will be a better choice overall. 100 dollars over 2 years of owning the phone is very little per month. It is completely worth it. Get the HD.
    I completely agree. I have heard the battery will last longer, so I would get the Maxx HD, but if you would want a smaller screen size, go with the Maxx.

    Looks nice. I just can't justify losing my unlimited data/paying full price for another phone. Looks like it'll be me and my Maxx for a while.

    Perfectly happy with my Maxx. Were I to replace it, the choice would be an easy one.

    Agreed. Get the new device that is optimized for the way the phone market is today. The original Maxx is a great phone but it is certainly ready for the HD screen.

    If I get this off contract due to the unlimited data from a non Verizon place can I add insurance to it?

    A requirement of being a nexus is that the boot loader is unlock able.

    Yup. While I'd rather eat my own leg than have a Motorola, there will never be a locked down Nexus.

    Good question. Would folks like you and I have to buy it from some place like BB? As for the price, why do I get the feeling that the price will be $700

    As long as it is purchased from Verizon or bought second hand and never activated by the first owner, yes you should be able to.

    I've bought used phones from Craigslist and when I switched them onto my plan my insurance stayed on the plan. Never had a problem. Maybe if u didn't have insurance then all of a sudden bought a used phone wanted insurance and a week later it was broken they might suspect something

    We're talking about if you try and add it to the new device, not if you already have it when you add that device.

    I've done both and haven't had a problem. I'm sure as long as u do it when u activate the new device there shouldn't be a problem and I've never had one

    Which is why it won't happen, moto nexus that is.

    Moto has different visuals towards our community than sammy, that and the nexus isn't a hot or well selling device.

    I seriously know one person with one, and can't remember the last time I seen one out in the wild.

    What draw to having a nexus device is there for moto? None.

    But..

    Motorola is now Google.

    Plus the Nexus program would trump any existing "visuals to our community".

    All of this is irrelevant though until Motorola is responsible for an actual Nexus-branded device.

    I will be buying the HD the day it comes out. I have been waiting for this device for a while. It is a bummer about not coming with Jelly Bean though. I didn't really expect it, but it was a want. It's just after having my grouper with JB I got a little spoiled.

    Google bought moto for its patents, day to day operations for moto are still moto, not Google......Motorola will never produce a nexus device, unless Google takes full control over moto, which is very unlikely!

    There is no money in the nexus, Motorola has no desire for it or 3rd party devs, they only care about their robotic image and Verizon making them cash.

    Prove me wrong. You can't, and to even slightly believe moto might do a nexus device is absurd.

    This. Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't it been conveyed that there's more or less a firewall between Moto and Google?

    Motorola won't do the next Nexus device simply because they're owned by Google and Google probably doesn't want to see like they're playing favorites.

    There's no money in the Nexus? Do you know if HTC received any incentives for the Nexus One? Or Samsung with the Nexus S or Galaxy Nexus? Or Asus with the Nexus 7?

    That doesn't mean Motorola can't ever make a Nexus device for Google and they already have an existing relationship with Google when it comes to a lead device for a new version of Android. For all intents and purposes the WiFi Xoom was basically the Nexus for Honeycomb. And you could unlock the bootloader.

    Again, if Motorola was allowed into the Nexus program, final say would come from Google so any attitudes toward the modding community would come from Google, not Motorola.

    The Nexus brand is more than just a development platform now. Google appears to be shaping it into their definitive Google experience.

    Prove me wrong. You can't, and to even slightly believe Motorola would never do a Nexus device is absurd.

    There is.

    And that means Motorola doesn't get any preferential treatment. Especially with regards to the Nexus program.

    They'd have to apply like everyone else.

    There is, but it's clear google has final say over motorolas decisions. Also, the firewall exists only between the android team and Motorola, not between Motorola and the rest of google.
