This is KeyLimePie, this should be much smoother than WP8, cause the framerates on JB are on par with iOS, so I'm thinking will KLP be above 100 FPS, cause WP8 rates are at 90FPS.....?

So because you say "should" then it must be true.. You would have to go three updates from now to be that smooth

Yes frames rate of jb are 'almost' on par, but still occasional lags are still present way more than what ios has...As much as i want my JB devices to be better than apple's i'm afraid it is still not..yes my android devices are much cooler than ios...but u got to give it to apple when it comes to OS, their UI sucks though

The quote uses motorola phone not model.
Xoom obviously isnt a phone.

Unless the quote got changed...it does say phone. But you are right about the Xoom and Honeycomb.

"The phone will come with a locked bootloader via Big Red, although you can get it unlocked at a price of $15 a month."

Uhhhh what? Lmao what a joke if that's true. Watch Google offer it for $300 off contract through the Play Store too haha.

Right, what a joke that Verizon would charge an ongoing $15/month. Greedy Verizon!! What a rip-off company.

No kidding. I mean WTF? 15 dollars a month for the "luxury" of a small bit of code to unlock my phone one time, which then kills my warranty? Then I have to pay 300 dollars and sign my life away for two years? Damn, that's some crap right there. I'm done with big sleezy red. And I'm not even one of those people who gets mad at a company for making money. But seriously? Who in the fonk would buy that? Oh, and then on top of all that, they would be allowed to kick us off our unlimited data.

This is very interesting... if the phone is going to be offered on Google Play, does that mean it could be a GSM device also?

And once again, if this is true, Verizon seeks to completely f**k up a good thing. I'll buy mine unlocked through Google if it's available that way. Maybe I can talk to the powers that be about getting Best Buy to flip the bird to the carriers and ink a deal to offer the unlocked X. It's been frustrating not being able to offer the Nexus line in store.

I don't think it's that huge of a deal Sniggly. Verizon isn't forcing you to use their services.

I think Google should open Google Play retail stores for the Nexus line when it expands a bit, along with some Motorola devices. I would apply there, it would be nice to work for Google.

you dont want to work for Verizon. To be honest working with this company is a pain in the a$s, because its the top rated company, customers feel entitled to any and everything. If you do work for Verizon or any carrier for that fact go for Business to Business, or Tech support. Stay away from the front lines. But then again I dont work for corprate, So stay away from retailers that have bad customer reviews.
