    Probably because the phone is canceled. That's the only logical conclusion.

    Just saying I can't see the darn picture LOL. I know the main site (Android Central) has it up so will go there.

    Next thing you know it, Verizon's going to issue a press release along with video of them throwing their Nexus model into a gray metal bucket, dousing it in gasoline, and then setting it alight while Lowell McAdam is in the background flicking off the camera. Then as a finale he unzips his pants and urinates into the bucket while staring right into camera and says, "How do you like your Nexus now?"


    "Veriiizzooooon!" *shakes fist*

    What I find most interesting about that image is that there is no Verizon branding on it (at least not on the front). No Samsung branding either, for that matter. The only logo is Google's, there in the search box.

    I guess that's standard for a Nexus device, but I have to admit... after the way Verizon bloated and Binged the Fascinate, I'm going to derive considerable satisfaction from a phone that bears no sign of their interference.

    Check out this video around 22 seconds in. The notifcation bar is pulled down and you see the Verizon brand name sliding down at the bottom of the bar. Maybe this is how they will brand the phone.

    Well, that could be an indicator of what network you're currently on, which could say something other than Verizon if you're roaming. But if it is branding, well, it's pretty subtle, and I'm OK with it if it keeps Verizon happy. Until I flash CM9, anyway. :-)

    Usually EVERY phone has some kind of indication of what carrier it is running on. Hell, even the iPhone has the carrier name in the top left corner. So I guess the carrier name in the notification shade will be the standard for ICS.

    The carrier name in the notification shade has been part of Android since at least 2.0. With ICS they're just nice enough to shove it down to the bottom instead of being in like 30pt text right up top.
