    I just hope Google is able to stand up to the US carriers and get the Nexus S on the other three carriers.

    Yeah I was reading about that. Well I bet that they don't add their bloatware to the iPhone why do they have to add it to the Nexus S. Something is wrong with these carriers. This phone could possibly boost their sales!

    Adding bloatware would kind of defeat the purpose of a pure Google phone, lol.

    It really shows you that some carriers/networks would rather screw their customers with "features/bloatware" than giving their customers a decent phone with a good update future.

    For me, the Nexus S and Nexus One are the only Android handsets worth anything thanks to their pure android experience without the added crap from the networks.

    Yeah. But I am pretty sure they wouldn't add their bloatware to the iPhone but when it comes to the Nexus S it's a different story.

    I just hope that the other 3 US carriers don't try to put bloatware on the Nexus S and leave it as it is. In the case of the IPhone money talks. That phone makes so much money that it is virtually carrier proof.

    Yeah, that's assuming that they even get the Nexus S which I doubt, but it may happen. Haha yeah you are right "money talks."

    Spot on. Sadly it seems Apple is the only manufacturer that is immune to carrier customization. As long as there's a "clean" android device on offer, I'll be happy!

    Verizon is insanely stupid, they released their own app store, and they add bloat.... with the store, you wont need to put all of the apps pre installed. I guess the consumers are the only one who can make sense of it all and offer a proper solution, Verizon just wont listen.

    I'm fine with verizon adding stuff. Im sure they make a few bucks doing that and if it keeps the bill down then fine. What Burns me is that they make it impossible to remove without root. What is the point of having a shortcut to an game I'm never going to buy? It's like TV flashing an ad over your TV the whole time its on. If anything it makes me not want to buy it just because I don't want to support that kind of advertisement. Ill be interested if verizon caves to the strict rules apple lays out. Or if apple will welcome preinstalled crapps.

    I think apple is going to cave more than verizon will, but it will be good for both in the sales area if/when verizon gets an iphone

    It seems like the Iphone is the only phone that Verizon can't load its crap on.

    We will see, they have managed to use it as a way to get rid of the early upgrade.

    The Nexus S won't be coming to any of the other carriers. None of them want it.

    Apple would never agree to an iPhone with carrier bloatware. Like AT&T, all of Verizon's extra apps will be available for the user to download in the App store.
