    With the "new" pictures of the Verizon GNex from vzw website. The back cover doesn't say "Google" like the other GNex overseas.... Or almost every other android phone...Hhmmm....
    I would think Google wouldn't give that up..

    I thought this was already known. I could care either way really. I have friends who have Sprint and T Mobile who never seem to have service so I've learned to appreciate VZW a lot.

    I have learned to appreciate VZW aswell.. their customer service has bent over backwards for me several times, and their coverage is priceless..

    I do kinda wish this said Google somewhere on it though..

    Maybe the Google branding would have gone on the back if it weren't for Verizon's software going on the phone. The Google stamp on back may represent a Google only experience, but since Verizon has their software on it, it can't be a full on Google experience, and thus no labeling.

    Similar to how THX certifications for audio happens, or RoHS labeling for electronic products and stuff. You can't label something THX if it doesn't pass certain tests and you can't put on a RoHS label if the product contains certain substances.

    Know what I'm saying?

    If you don't like the logo you can always change the back cover for the GSM one.

    That's just it. IMO a Nexus should be about a pure Google experience. I think they have already ruined by putting their 2 apps on it and takes away from what a Nexus is supposed to be about. I'm still getting the getting the phone, but it just disappoints me

    I'm not surprised about the phone not saying "google"....they gave it to Verizon to do whatever they wanted with it. I'll be shocked if its even a pure google phone at this point.

    Couldn't agree more. At least their fugly logo is on back where a case could easily cover that crap up!

    My Droid 2 Global is full of Verizon and Motorola bloatware but still says "with Google" on the back of it. You think something as simple as that could be added. Just my two cents.

    But the back of my bloat-i-fied Droid Incredible says "with Google" on it.

    Edit: ^^ beat me to it.

    omgz no Google logo on back, time to cue up 10 pages of speculation, followed up by nervousness, followed up by more speculation and anger, followed up by this isn't a Nexus device anymore, this is insane, this is madness!

    I can live with the logo and two apps. Its not like we can't take it off. Phone will just go as fast and talk and text and web the same.

    I'm just happy or everybody should be happy that's the only thing they did. They could have locked the bootloader then that's a different story. Soooooo I can't argue.

    It could have the Apple logo on the back and I wouldn't care if I actually owned the device.

    LOL...We all now know why this isn't released yet! All these so called "bugs" in the phone was the word "Google" So Verizon had to fix this by erasing the word from all the phones and while they were at it they decided to add some bloat. This takes time guys so quit ragging on Verizon so much......it takes time to get rid of all the "bugs"......lol

    Yeah. I thought this was covered already. The back could have the big "V" and 4G LTE in big 2 inch letters for all I care. I worry more about the screen and what's inside making it run.

    sorry to be rude, but did this really need a new thread?
    My first thoughts exactly. I think this is better considered as a "comment" in the pictures thread that was just recently created.

    I don't care about the logo personally.

    But I think this sums up some people's thoughts on the matter:
