This deal's getting better all the time.

An external logo on the thing somewhere and a start-up splash page for these carriers should be enough. Any pre-installed carrier apps or 'bloatware' should be removable by the consumer if so desired.

I won't get my hopes up with Motorola until I see the goods. Otherwise my safe bet is the Note 3. I would rather be surprised than to be pissed. I learned a nice lesson with the Droid Bionic.

Who gets pissed over underwhelming phone releases?
(I thought to myself, then realizing that I am on PhoneArena, which immediately answered my question.)

Myx wakes up every morning, eats a bowl of wheaties, and posts trash about his bad experience with the Bionic on every Motorola article on PA....

that's cool. Motorola needs a unified device branding. i'm sure Motorola will make sure Verizon has the X and the Droid line going for them.

Oh, I know, it's just SOOOOOO awful. It renders the phone completely useless. Not to mention how uncool it is. I don't know how many times I have heard a girl say, "So, like, I met this guy at the club last night, and, like, he was really cute and SUCH a good dancer and I was all, like, totally into him, but then when I went to give him my number, I saw that his phone had a carrier logo on it and I was, like, 'Who do you think you are all trying to put my digits in your sorry little carrier-branded phone?'"
To heck with RAM and screen brightness and intuitive UIs and snappy browsers, I WANT NO LOGOS ON MY PHONE!!!!!

If this phone has stock and updates handle by Google.... Take my money

Good. Maybe Google will have an agreement with Verizon that any and all updates will be handled and pushed directly by them, not the carrier.

eh, don't get your hopes up for it.
remember Verizon managed to get updates delayed for their version of the Galaxy Nexus each and every time and that was a Nexus device.
