It looks like Verizon is throwing in the towel on the Nexus. It has already dropped to the bargain $99 tier direct from Verizon and now its hit free on contract from retailers. EOL can't be too far off. Though I can't really say I'm surprised, Verizon has a new top tier device in the SIII to gimp features on and load down with proprietary bloatware much more shamelessly than a "Nexus" device. Add to that the off contract only "Developer" SIII for those that know and care to show Verizon exactly where they can stick it and their isn't really a place for the Nexus anymore. Granted Verizon never really seemed to welcome a Nexus with open arms. They denied then finally fessed up to blocking Google Wallet in favor of their own yet to launch payment system, a "Feature" they have carried over to the SIII. Then there are the painfully slow updates. So given it's fall from grace I won't be holding my breath for an official JB OTA. Instead I will being actively ROM'ing the hell of mine. My plans to sell it, pay the ETF and go with a true GSM Nexus are not looking so good now that Verizon's price cuts will have most likely killed the resale value. Though I do plan on filling a complaint with the FTC about Google Wallet and the interesting coincidence that most, if not all NFC enabled Verizon and AT&T phones have Google Wallet blocked by the carrier. Also interesting how both Verizon and AT&T are part of the same competing payment service partnership.
