You know, I'm starting to think that we Verizon customers should start a petition or start leaving message on Verizon's Facebook and Twitter pages letting them know that we want the next Nexus phone. Maybe they will be more likely to pick it up if they see enough demand for it amongst they're customers.

"Sorry, I do not have any info to share on Nexus phones at this time. Sign up for email updates at Verizon Wireless *RT"
Hit them up!

Do you guys really think the bean-counters over at Big Red don't read this site (and sites like it)? They know there would be a market for this phone. I'll take one, too! I also seem to recall a BMX post about the Nexus S, "Ours will be better." The term "ours" is interesting because he works for Verizon. Is this the unicorn? I hope so. If it goes to AT&T, I hope all four people that will be able to use their LTE love it. YMMV,

A thought everyone, before all us Verizon customers get too happy...
I hate to be the Debbie Downer, but LTE makes perfect sense to be in the next Nexus. LTE is the next generation of GSM, nearly every network, worldwide and American is moving to LTE. What isn't obvious is that it will be on Verizon. Or even, useful on Verizon.
Likely, the unlocked, world version of the Nexus 3 will be HSPA+/LTE and not support Verizon because Verizon uses a bit of an oddball spectrum band for their LTE network. And there will also likely be a CDMA/WiMax version for Sprint. But nothing really past or present makes me think we'll see a CDMA/LTE version for Verizon.
And if, by some miracle the world version does support Verizon LTE bands, you'll lose the main reason many of us want it on Verizon; ubiquitous connectivity. You'll be limited to areas where Verizon has their LTE network set up; otherwise, dead zone. That's because without a CDMA radio, you won't be able to use Verizon's 3G/1x data network or their conventional call/text network. That may be okay for some, but not everyone.
TL;DR: Seriously, LTE is a good sign, but it's not a guarantee it'll come to Verizon. (And all of this wall of text assumes that the rumor is even true *at all*.)

Please be on Verizon please be on Verizon please be on Verizon please be on Verizon please be on Verizon please be on Verizon please be on Verizon please be on Verizon.
That is all.
I need to get off of this enV Touch. I'm waiting for the Galaxy S II, but this might be better.

Verizon is all about having the best covering network, which they do better than anyone else. I just don't see them as the company to come out with this (albeit, I would love it being that I am a VZW customer). They sold their souls to Sata...er...Jobs to try and steal some iOs market share from AT&T and I think they pretty much blew their load on that deal.

We don't know if Verizon will allow unlocked lte devices on their network. If they don't actively block unlocked devices, they don't have to support it. It just has to be compatible with their network.
