Holy crap. Brace yourself for some Friday afternoon bad news -- it looks like Google may be washing its hands of all associations with the Verizon Galaxy Nexus. No one knows for sure why El Goog would do this, but all signs point to the fact that it is indeed turning its back on the first ICS phone here in the US.
Update x2: Let's see if we can clear this up a bit, shall we? The basic gist is this: CDMA phones require proprietary code in order for voice and data service to work. This code is handled on the carrier-side of development, not Google's.
