Explains the death of Verizon Apps.

Why do all the work when someone else can, no overhead, and a cut of the revenue.

More dogfood bloatware.

Thanks guys!

Ok man i could be wrong and you're right......but somethings telling me that If google releases a CDMA version of this phone "on verizon" with LTE.....it will not cost you the same as the GSM version...........and you just said that the Droid Razr HD and the GS3 cost the same off contract on t mobile? Well of course because they both ARE GSM! loool makes sense right?

I am not sure yet. I just need to see what this HTC Droid DNA brings to the table that's all. I am falling in love with the 1080p SLCD 3 & the Qualcomm Krait S4 Pro. It all boils down to the battery, if the battery is decent on STOCK which early reviews are claiming, then once I root & get rid of HTC Sense it will get GREAT battery life with a GREAT AOSP ROM & Kernel.

If not I am going Galaxy Note II all the way.

Thank you. That is what I have been trying to say all along. A CDMA 4G LTE Nexus 4 has NOTHING to do & won't affect the price of a GSM Nexus 4.

I am so glad you finally got through to him. These last 2 days with him have been brutal. My 4 year old gets things quicker.

+100 if it were possible so a +1 will do!

XPERIA-KNIGHT you are a sorry individual. It's known that "NEW" technology is ALWAYS more expensive at first. Once the "NEW" technology becomes the STANDARD then prices ALWAYS fall.

For you to say & I quote "And i am simply telling you that if you want the COMPLETE PACKAGE (LTE and bigger battery?)......then be prepared to PAY A HIGHER PRICE TAG!!" is just redundant at best.

I mean it's like saying what humans breathe air, I mean how silly can you be. Just so you know the GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a cheaper price point than the CDMA 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Nexus SO we all have known that already & you were just clearly stating the obvious.

MorePhonesThanNeeded said it best. XPERIA-KNIGHT you need to slow your roll just a slight bit, I think you are getting to ahead of yourself. You are posting some crazy stuff.

Sh!t!!!!! I hate this. But can't you just disable all that immediately? I'll quit checking Amazon from PC too if they keep jamming it down my throat.

Ya, I think I have made my mind up, after my contract ends next year with Verizon....only Nexus devices from now on. I just hope by then ATT will have improve their service here...or I might have to give Tmobile a try
