- I think they're delaying it because they'll sell more Droid Razr's without the Google Nexus on sale next to it. Samsung will sell more Galaxy S II's (just as they're now starting to run good ads) without the Google Nexus on sale with another carrier. Verizon wants to sell the Droid Razr because some of their bloatware can result in extra revenue streams for them. And maybe (just maybe) Google wants to give the Droid Razr some breathing room, since they will soon own Motorola.
The real Android fans will wait for the Galaxy Nexus either way. So perhaps it's just a better business decision to hold it and delay delay delay.Dec 12, 2011
- they're trying to sell the rezounds because it's been selling like shit.Dec 12, 2011
- Regarding the profit stream from bloatware, don't assume that all customers are as savvy as you. Verizon Navigator is $10/*month*, and you can activate it on accident. That's a real revenue stream for Verizon. Text plans cost more, even though text on Google Voice is free (admittedly, it sometimes doesn't work very well).
Think of somebody who doesn't know anything about smartphones beyond what they saw in a 90 second local television news segment on phones as holiday gifts. This person goes into the Verizon store, says "I want a fast phone that I can also use instead of a GPS in my car." If the salesperson has been well-trained, s/he will sell that customer an LTE phone with Verizon Navigator already activated.Dec 12, 2011
