Verizon has a very stringent testing process, and in some cases the phones need to be made compatible with carrier-specific CDMA. AT&T can accept global GSM handsets with little to no modification. They're pretty much on the ball with the G2 and Note 3 launches. One week is nothing compared to the extreme case of the HTC One, which launched 4 months later. Verizon was going to skip the device entirely because they were already selling the Butterfly (DNA), but changed their minds.

I am sure they have been testing this phone for a long time already. I suspect that they don't want to be first. Look at the iPhone, they always have issues when they are first released. The company(s) that choose to be first will have many more issues to contend with. I'll bet Verizon saves $Millions by letting the other companies be the guinea pigs. At the very least, they can scale up or down their help desks, depending on how the introduction went with AT&T.

As for the iPhone, Lumia, and Moto X.... 1. The iPhone was not a sure thing when it launched in 2007. Apple was looking for one strong partner to push their brand new device. Rumor has it that they approached the biggest two providers, Verizon and Cingular(AT&T), and AT&T was more willing to accept Apple's request with regards to control of software updates and marketing. The original deal was rumored to be 5 years (!!) exclusivity, but Apple was able to wriggle out of it and sell the iPhone 4 on Verizon in Feb. 2011. 2. Nokia has had a very weak relationship with Verizon in recent years, so it didn't surprise me that they went to AT&T. AT&T was willing to pay up for a 6 month exclusivity deal on the 920. By the time that expired and Verizon was able to offer the Lumia 928 (a slightly improved 920), the 1020 was near launch. So Nokia - stupidly, in my opinion - offered it to AT&T again as a 6 month exclusive. The problem is that by the time Verizon gets the 1020, the new Lumia flagship will be available. 3. I can't explain why Motorola offers Moto Maker and the 32 GB Moto X only on AT&T. Maybe AT&T paid up for the 3 month exclusive deal. I think it's a terrible decision and Motorola is squandering a chance to sell the super-customizable phone we all hoped for on all carriers.

AT&T is actually the number 1 carrier and Verizon is number 2. AT&T also uses GSM which is more worldwide than Verizon's CDMA phones so phone makers have more options using GSM.
