So much hype, so much promise, so many disappointments.

The exclusive deals ruin what should have been a great launch. I'm not switching carriers just to customize a phone. And with no SD card AND a model with a reasonable amount of storage exclusive to one carrier... total, utter fail.

No SD card. That kinda hurts. Also, forgive me if I missed it in the article, but does the phone come rooted and with a SIM card slot? My hope with the Google phone was 'open' for me to use how I want. The exclusivity has me concerned. Am I going to get a phone with a bunch of bloatware that I will end up voiding my contract by rooting in order to clean it up?


Hope most of the software customization's show up in next Nexus 4.
