Re: The Officially Official Verizon Rep "Source" Thread
Shortly, after ICS unpacked. People flooded sitew for release info. since Verizon was rumored to carry it but was not in Hong Kong for the unpacking. When people saw Samsungs tweet that was in response to a question about the release. They stated Verizon was the only carrier who signed on for the Nexus US launch, at that time. Which was a solid confirmation for rumors that pointed to a Nexus on Big Red. Verizon didn't find that amusing for whatever reason, so they made Samsung retract that tweet and reissue one stating they were wrong about the tweet and had no info. on who would get it. Which panicked some into thinking the Nexus got ditched by Big Red because they did the same thing previously at the last minute, ditched the Nexus release for a Droid branded phone. Big Red got flooded w/ angry questions, threats to leave and ultimatums, about it and then made themselves look like morons by issuing the confirmation they would carry it and release it later this year. Just to stem the flow of a bad decision they put on Samsungs back when they tried to avoid release questions. They made Samsung lie, only to be exposed.as frauds soon after. That's the only reason they issued that pr to media outlets. They don't want to kick the hive that soon after. These recent posts about occupy Verizon, Facebook interactions and petitions pale in comparison to the first round of emails & consumer complaints over the Twitter nonsense.
