Are you freaking serious? I'm sorry, but $299 is just way too much for a device that doesn't even have Gorilla Glass. The specs on this phone are sub par compared to the Galaxy S2 (GS2). The only cool thing it really has going for it is ICS, which I'm willing to wait for with my GS2, which was $100 cheaper I might add . :)

If you're on Verizon, there is no SGSII though.

I'll sign up for the info, but I'm back to see-sawing between this and the Razr again.

Gorilla glass means crap. It's just a marketing brand name. There are many other ways to protect glass without using Gorilla glass that are equally effective or even better. IMO Nexus >> Razr, for many reasons but the main one being the locked bootloader.

Nice reason, but the Nexus on Verizon will have a locked bootloader unless you think Verizon will let you have a phone on their network that can freely use tethering and hotspot. So far both of these phones are pretty close to being identical spec wise, one just sports a slightly larger screen, the other has a higher rear camera mega pixel count. One happens to come with ICS out of the box, but the other will gain in in a few months. So far only thing that really separates the two are the OS's that come installed, everything else is refutable.

Lets see your man reasons that Nexus is greater than the Razr, shall we?

It won't be locked. Samsung and HTC phones are not locked on Verizon and these phones won't be any different either. Since my phone (OG Droid), Motorola has been implementing locked bootloaders in conjunction with Verizon. Also, the MP count is irrelevant marketing garbage. Motorola still hasn't managed to improve their camera module to the same standards as Samsung.

Gorilla Glass is just another name for fortified glass. Guess what the Nexus has? Fortified glass.
