Android Police presents a fictionalized account of the creation of the Verizon Ellipsis 8 tablet.

Basking Ridge, New Jersey, November 5th, 2014

Verizon Wireless corporate headquarters

"I can't believe those jerks at Motorola. A week, a freakin' week after we debut the most powerful, spec-heavy phone in the country as a Verizon exclusive, they go and scrape our magnificent paint off the case and sell it themselves!"

"The Moto Maxx is only being sold in Latin America, sir.

'Moto Maxx,' Possibly A DROID Turbo Variant For Non-US Markets, Spotted On Google+

Verizon's ongoing DROID program means that most of the phones sold under the label will never appear on other US carriers. When the DROID Turbo was announced last week as one of the most high-end phones to come this year, more than a few of our commenters said that they'd prefer it to the Nexus 6 (also made by Motorola) due to its smaller size, if only a non-locked GSM version was available.

The Verizon Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition Is In Stock And Ready To Ship From Samsung For $700

Ah, Developer Editions, what would we do without you? Probably suck it up and buy the retail versions, since anyone who's actually in the market for a Developer Edition phone on Verizon doesn't have a choice of GSM carriers with unlocked phones. If you've been drooling over the Galaxy Note 4's high-end hardware but lamenting Verizon's locked bootloader policy, Samsung is ready to sell you an unlockable phone. That will be $699.99, please.

CyanogenMod Nightlies Arrive For The Verizon Galaxy S5 And The GSM HTC One Mini 2

Android has come a long way over the years, and there's less incentive to install a custom ROM than there used to be. Nevertheless, the desire is still there. CyanogenMod remains the most established and well-known option around, so it's no small thing when a new device gets supported. Two devices that have recently made the list include the Verizon Galaxy S5 (kltevzw) and the GSM version of the HTC One Mini 2 (memul).

Google Announces US Carrier Availability For The Nexus 6: AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular... And Verizon

The Nexus 6 looks to be Google's most widely-released phone ever, at least in the context of United States carriers. While the company has taken an "unlocked first" approach to carrier partnerships since the ill-fated Verizon Galaxy Nexus, it has offered at least some of the traditional phone sales on the Nexus 5. For the new Motorola Nexus 6, every major American carrier will have a phone option, though whether that means there's one phone that will work with all or there will be multiple versions, we can't say at the moment.

Verizon Wireless Adding The HTC Desire 612 To Its Lineup October 9th

The HTC Desire 610 marked a revival for the "Desire" brand in the US when it came to AT&T in late July. Now a variant, the Desire 612, is finding its way to Verizon Wireless, as the carrier will start selling the handset in just two days. Think of it as largely the same as the version on AT&T, just with more branding and extra red.
