    Don't look now but there's more mud being thrown at the wall to see if it'll stick.

    I highly doubt this given how this new Nexus device is showing up in systems in both Verizon and Best Buy.

    I don't think things would have moved so far if there was such a dispute with Google Wallet.

    I call BS on this article.

    EDIT: I wish I could down vote this thread in to oblivion Reddit style.

    I don't give that article too much credit. I'm not sure if it was ever disproved but didn't Verizon have an image of the Nexus in their system. We will find out soon though.

    Guys, don't even give it a second thought. It's an NFC rumors site and they're the only place to "report" this? And they're saying it's the reason last week's event was canceled. It has since been rescheduled, so it's a moot point, anyways.

    Seriously, forget you even read it.

    I agree that it does seem to be kind of late for a Google Wallet dispute to stop the launch of the device.

    I think Verizon's users deserve a Nexus device... but I do not think that it should be limited to Verizon only. AT&T/T-Mobile deserve get the GSM version. Sprint deserves to get a version as well given that they've been a partner for Google with the Google Voice Integration and Google Wallet.

    Wow, I should just make up crap and post it to the web for ad revenue hits too!
    Maybe if they'd posted this before 1) the rescheduling of the announcement and 2) before it showed up in Best Buy and Verizon's systems as a Verizon phone.

    Psssh NFC Rumors. Everyone knows the announcement at CITA was cancelled because Google wanted to announce the shutdown of Jaiku first. Duuhhh!

    Next week I expect Android nerdgasms to reach an all time high.

    Well I heard VZW is holding the release up because they don't like the shade of black Samsung picked for the device...they thought it looked too menacing.

    I don't believe it. More BS being flung. Apparently everyone has an insider "close to the matter".

    LOL Even if the Galaxy Nexus shows up on Verizon for an exclusive period?

    Actually, where as I don't know if Verizon will end up with the Nexus Prime. I do know that the rumors article is based in truth, wherever they got the information from.

    That's just fine. I don't have to have it on the first day. I do know that there is a GSM version coming for certain and even if there was an exclusivity it wouldn't be that long.

    True, but all it takes is a month or two before phones are no longer top of the line any longer. If it is a Verizon exclusive and you have to wait 2-3 months for it to show up on another carrier, there will probably be a better phone to choose from at that point.

    There are like 5 stores that take Google Wallet, so I can't see Verizon even caring.

    Never underestimate Verizon's ability to screw their customers. I'm cautious until the phone is actually for sale.

    I will say this... if Verizon botches this I will leave their network. LTE isn't worth their anti-customer stance.

    One thing I don't understand...Isis is also in bed with AT&T and T-Mobile. So, what, no AT&T or T-Mobile model as well? It's not likely they would back down to Google if Verizon isn't as well.

    This almost seems plausible that Verizon might be holding things up. If you look at the Nexus S, Google Wallet is only avaiable on the Sprint version -- no where in sight for the AT&T and T-Mobile version. Chances are it's because of Isis like you said. Verizon might not be okay with Google Wallet thanks to their deal with Isis. Really though, I expect that this 'feature' might be left out rather than totally canning the device. Google, as powerful as they are, usually gives in to some of the carriers requests. They aren't like Apple.

    I still have Nexus one which is actually just fine even after almost two years. It still runs better than a lot of newer phones. Only thing that kinda bothers me is that I have to watch out how much space I have left as apps are getting larger these days, so I decided to get on with the odd number version of Nexus. I was hoping that I would give myself a Christmas present with it, but I am not sure they will make it in time.

    I agree. Google is at the mercy of the carriers when it comes to things like this. Either they take it out or their phone doesn't hit the majority of the US market. And I just can't see that happening.

    How unfortunate if this turns out to be true.
